Chevrolet Avalanche Replacement Shocks Information


Regardless of how tough the road gets, Chevy Avalanche shocks have to hold their own no matter what. Housed in a slender, cylindrical metal container, Chevy Avalanche shocks operate by releasing hydraulic fluid that brings pistons into play. These pistons release pressure to counteract road induced friction on the wheels and suspension. This counterbalancing force negates road friction allowing wheels to spin and not careen off the car or become damaged in any way.

A part in the strut assembly along with steering knuckles and spring seats, Chevy Avalanche shocks are made road tough, but can be damaged by any series of events. Should drivers experience bad handling, wheels going out of balance or tough steering, the shocks may be at fault. Owners of the Chevrolet Avalanche are encouraged to replace worn shocks immediately so they can keep the full-size sport utility vehicle on the road.

Research on Shocks for Chevrolet Avalanche

Shocks make handling your Chevy Avalanche easier and riding in it more comfortable. When your shocks go bad, you should get them replaced. This relatively small repair on your truck can reap significant improvements in ride comfort for you and for your passengers, and it can restore handling of your truck.

What are Shocks?

Shock absorbers reduce the vibrations from the road that your Avalanche feels by absorbing excessive energy that would cause your truck to continue to move up and down long after going over a bump. Though you have standard shocks installed on your truck, you can get Avalanche suspension upgrades to replace the standard shocks with air shocks or lift kits so your truck rides higher. For such upgrades, you will need to replace all the shocks and struts on your truck.

How Long Do Shocks Last?

Shocks on your truck will not last forever. Whether you have a 2017 or a 2002 Chevy Avalanche shocks and struts should be replaced every 50,000 miles or more often if the shocks fail inspection. At regular intervals, plan to take a look at the shocks, a good rule of thumb is whenever you change your oil or get new brake pads installed. Look for signs of wear or leaking, and if you see oil coming from the shocks, you should replace them. Another test you can do to check the integrity of the shocks and struts is to put weight on the truck's body over each of the wheels and release. If you see that side bounce more than two or three times when you remove your weight, you need new shocks. The shock that allows for excessive bouncing is no longer absorbing energy of impacts. That bouncing you saw your truck do after releasing your weight is exactly what your Avalanche will do after hitting a bump in the road. Replacing the shocks will fix the problem.

How Much Does It Cost to Get New Shocks on a Car?

When purchasing new shocks, you should always replace them in pairs. If you need a new rear shock, install rear shocks on both the passenger and drivers side. If you need new struts on the front, install new ones on both sides. The average mechanic's charge to install a pair of rear 2005 Chevy Avalanche 1500 shocks ranges from $316 to $1206, depending on the type of shocks you have. Air shocks generally cost more than standard shocks. If you want to go to your Chevy dealer for your Chevy Avalanche shocks replacement, you will likely pay more than you would to a mechanic.
