Research on Shock Absorber for GMC Sierra 1500

The shock absorber is an integral part of your vehicle's suspension system. If it is worn out, your will experience a lot of noise and vibration as you travel over less than perfect roads. The GMC Sierra 1500 shock absorber allows for a smooth ride. If there are signs of a problem, such as GMC Sierra suspension noise or a leak, the part should be checked as soon as possible, and replaced by a newer, more reliable part.

Taking the Bounce Out of Your Ride

The shock absorber's only purpose is to prevent bouncing, so you can better handle the vehicle. They are tube-like parts that move to compensate for motion. This, of course, puts the shocks under enormous stress, even during a normal ride. Struts, on the other hand, are connected directly to the vehicle chassis, and the coil spring that keeps your vehicle at a set height. Shocks and struts are often replaced in pairs to correct problems or ensure the integrity of the suspension system.

What You'll Pay for a Shock Absorber

The price you pay for an individual shock absorber varies greatly, depending on the model. A part can range from under a hundred dollars to several hundred. Assuming that you are having a professional mechanic correct your GMC Sierra suspension problems, you have to factor labor into the cost. Replacing a shock absorber at the shop can cost anywhere from $453 to $634 for both sides of the front suspension.

Do Car Shocks Leak?

The shocks are a common source of oil leaks. If you see any oil on the pavement after you park your car, checking the GMC Sierra suspension is a good idea. You may even notice oil leaking out of the shock, or coming down the side of the strut. Uneven tire wear can also be a sign of a shock problem. These issues can be a sign of a much bigger problem, so you should consider replacing the shocks to avoid larger expenses down the road.

What Are the Struts on a Car?

A structural component of the suspension system, struts leak as well. The top of a strut is mounted directly to the car's chassis. There is fluid inside both the shocks and struts. Shocks or struts are designed to compress, thanks to a piston and hydraulic fluid. The piston pushing against this fluid allows the part to absorb force, which happens every time the vehicle goes over a bump. This constant stress can eventually result in fluid leaks.

The General Motors Suspension recall of April 2016

Along with several other models, the GMC Sierra was included in a suspension recall issued by General Motors in April of 2016. This recall affected many front upper control arms with insufficient welds, which could compromise steering, not to mention the performance of the shock absorber. A free replacement was offered by the company, plus a realignment of the vehicle.

Saving on Your GMC Sierra 1500 Shock Absorber

If your GMC Sierra suspension problems are beginning to show, you may find the best deals on parts at PartsGeek.com. You may also be considering a GMC Sierra suspension lift or GMC Sierra suspension upgrades. Either way, you can avoid the costs of a traditional store or an automotive shop. Aftermarket replacements are often designed to correct potential faults in the original parts, so you may find better value for your dollar.

I wasn't sure if these came in a pair, or singles like the front shocks did. They came as a pair so i got 4 rear shocks, no worries though. I know ppl who would enjoy them. :) - deathender
