GMC K1500 Replacement Shock Absorber Information


Rugged, high-endurance trucks and SUVs including your tough, powerful GMC K1500 were made to handle rough terrain wherever you take them but they really have to have proper upkeep and first-rate parts to continue taking on those dangerous curves. For decades consumers have counted on GMC to engineer reliable vehicles that are applauded for superior quality. A genuine GMC always delivers a well-designed motor architecture and a superb powertrain. To buy a ride that will get you there fast, pick the GMC K1500. GMC is a well-known maker of solid and durable cars which include sleek styling and hold their value. If a part goes out on a rugged vehicle including the GMC K1500, you should know that because of the high quality, fixing the car isn't always in the cheap range. Bestselling carmakers know the vital importance of high performance. Shock absorbers are separated into two fundamental varieties: spring-based dampers which work via metal coil springs, and torsion shocks which rely on a torsion spring. Your car's GMC K1500 Shock Absorber is a steel spring mounted within a cylinder that augments the car or truck's suspension. Installed between the suspension system and the frame of the vehicle, GMC K1500 Shock Absorbers cushion the up-and-down movement of the car or truck. Your GMC K1500 Shock Absorbers reduce bouncing from dips in the street to offer a steadier ride.

Research on Shock Absorber for GMC K1500

You might be wondering when is the best time to get your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber replaced, you probably don't have an idea of the symptoms of a failing shock, but first you need to understand the workings of your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber and how it's designed. Your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber has a sole function of ensuring that your tires are on the ground on bumpy or rough terrain so that, the vehicle driver can be able to maintain control of the vehicle. Your GMC K1500 Shock Absorbers and struts are actually designed in the same way, except that the weight of the vehicle is normally on the strut itself while your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber is merely a link between two suspension parts. They usually consist of a cylinder called the reserve tube that is filled with hydraulic fluid, and another tube that is known as the pressure cylinder within that cylinder, a piston that travels through the inner cylinder, and valvings that meters the flow of the fluid from one side of the piston to the other as bumps on the road are encountered. They are attached to the vehicle using bolts and rubber bushings. There are various things that can go wrong with your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber eventually, so we are here to help you determine what the symptoms of a bad or failing GMC K1500 Shock Absorber are so that you can be able to make an educated decision as to whether or not you might need to replace them.

Signs your GMC K1500 Shock Absorbers are failing

In case the valiving or the piston seal that is inside the shock is wearing out then it may not sit properly, allowing fluid to flow uncontrolled past the valve or the piston seal and thereby allowing every tiny bump in the road to cause an overreaction that will actually be felt with your hands on the steering wheel. In case your valving or the piston seal that is inside your GMC K1500 Shock Absorber is wearing out then fluid will flow uncontrollably, and even the slightest steering movement of the slightest brake application by the driver will allow for extreme movement of the piston within the cylinder. Therefore, this means that if for instance, you take a right turn, the weight of the vehicle will shift harder to the left during the turn and the driver will have to correct it causing a swerve. When braking, the weight will shift farther forward than anticipated causing a nose dive.

GMC K1500 Shock Absorber Cost

The average cost of a GMC K1500 Shock Absorber replacement is between $198 and $337. The labor costs are estimated between $70 and $89 while the parts are priced between $128 and $248. It's advisable that you get a personalized quote that is based on your location, the make, model and year of your car when it comes to replacing your GMC K1500 Shock Absorbers, it's recommended that you get it from a reliable online retailer such as PartsGeek.com. We stock all GMC K1500 auto parts and accessories.

1990 GMC K1500 Shock Absorber

Very Satisfied
Reviewer: Matt

Doing quite a bit of reworking on my Z71, she has sat for quite some time. Time to get her back on the road, with new ball joints, tie rods, idler arm & bracket, pitman, cv axles, hubs, leaf springs, sway bar links and bushings, and a few other items. I have been able to save quite a bit of money on parts geek, and also "one stop shop." My experience has gone well sofar, as I do not normally order parts for my vehicles online. I will most likely continue to do so considering the hassle free ordering and the savings. Thanks, and happy shopping!!
