When To Get 1998 GMC Savana 2500 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1998 GMC Savana 2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Savana 2500 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 GMC Savana 2500 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC Savana 2500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Savana 2500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 GMC Savana 2500 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 GMC Savana 2500 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC Savana 2500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Savana 2500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 GMC Savana 2500 Steering & Suspension
