Your vehicle’s shocks and struts are a part of the ride and handling system that supports your vehicle’s weight and helps keep the wheels in contact with the road. As part of the suspension system, they also play an integral role in steering, braking power, and stability.
Suspension parts wear gradually at unnoticeable levels, and each vehicle varies depending on driving conditions. The following indicators of wear will help identify when it’s time for suspension repair or replacement:
If you notice any of these issues, bounce by your Certified Service dealer and bounce back with the care of an expert technician. No one is better able to diagnose signs of wear or the need for suspension repair on a GM Vehicle than a Certified Service expert.
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 completed by a Certified Service expert technician to see if replacement shocks and struts are needed.
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.
