Certified Service: Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac Suspension Repair with ACDelco Replacement Shocks And Struts

Your vehicle’s shocks and struts are a part of the ride and handling system that supports your vehicle’s weight and keeps the wheels in contact with the road in order to provide a comfortable ride. As part of the suspension system, they also play an integral role in steering, braking power, and stability, which is why it’s important to have your vehicle inspected by a Certified Service expert technician. No one is better able to diagnose signs of wear or the need for suspension repair.

When it’s time to invest in new replacement shocks and struts, trust your Chevy, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac to the technicians who know the ins and outs of suspension repair for your specific vehicle.


Both vehicle ride height and tire pressure affect your vehicle’s suspension system. Maintaining these features will help ensure a longer lifespan for your shocks and struts and keep your vehicle’s braking, steering, and acceleration functioning at their best.

For convenience and driver safety, it’s recommended to schedule a visual inspection and chassis lubrication when you have your vehicle’s oil changed. If visual inspections are not done with your oil change, it’s a good idea to have an annual inspection of the suspension system by a Certified Service expert technician to see if replacement shocks and struts are needed. Suspension inspections will help prevent premature tire wear.

Signs of Repair and Replacement

Driving with a worn suspension system can impact handling, making it crucial to know when it’s time to replace your shocks and struts on your vehicle. Shocks and struts wear gradually at unnoticeable levels, and each vehicle varies depending on driving conditions, which is why it is recommended that shocks and struts be inspected at least every 50,000 miles, and more frequently thereafter. The following indicators of wear will help identify when it’s time for suspension repair or replacement:

  • Leaking oil along the shock body
  • Broken mounts or mounting hardware

  • Worn or missing bushings
  • Excessive vehicle bounce

  • Cupped tire wear
  • Excessive ball joint play
