Chevrolet C1500 Replacement Shocks Information


Chevrolet C1500 shocks do much more than minimize the bounce a truck owner's vehicle experiences when hitting those deep potholes, or going off-roading. Chevrolet C1500 shocks also help the truck owner with controlling and handling the vehicle, because without shocks, the truck would bounce and jerk all over the road, making steering the vehicle extremely difficult, and off-roading an impossibility. Shocks work by pushing oil through valves in the moving piston. This provides resistance, since only a certain amount of oil can be pressed through the valves, as oil cannot be compressed. It is in this way the shocks limit the trucks movement, lessening the bounce a driver experiences on rough roads, when hitting a deep pothole, or when off-roading. Shocks should be replaced when the car bounces too much after hitting dips or minor potholes, or when it rocks back and forth too much after rapid stops, or if the vehicle begins to drift left or right when applying the brakes forcefully. To extend the lifetime of shocks, drivers should try to take the smoothest routes to and from work, and avoid deep potholes or dirt roads.

Research on Shocks for Chevrolet C1500

Your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks are a very important component of your car's suspension system. When you are driving, your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks are always in use, and like any other component in your Chevrolet C1500, over extensive use, they are prone to wear out and will eventually lose their ability to function properly. However, there are signs that every driver could watch out for, to know when it's time to replace their shocks. Once you are aware of their signs, you will be able to determine when you need to take your car to your mechanic. If you don't know these signs, you don't need to worry, in this article, you will learn a few common symptoms that will alert you that your shocks need replacing. But before, you learn these symptoms it's important to know how your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks function.

Functions of a Shock

Your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks are designed to ensure your tires and the road or ground below are in constant contact. Your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks are merely a link between your suspension parts and your car. It consists of a cylinder that is filled with hydraulic fluid. Inside the cylinder, there is yet another tube called the pressure cylinder, and a piston that passed through the inner cylinder, and a valving that meters the flow of the fluid from one side of the piston to the other, as your car goes over bumps. Your Chevrolet C1500 Shocks are usually attached to your car using bolts and rubber bushings.

Signs your Shocks are Faulty

Driving your Chevrolet C1500 with worn out shocks can increase your cars stopping distance by up to 20%. Therefore as you increase your speed, this increases the distance it stops. This 20% extra distance is enough to cause a fatal incident, and it's advisable that you get your car to a qualified mechanic as soon as you notice this fault. Another common symptom is swerving and nose dives. In case your car dips or swerves when you brake, then you need to have your shocks checked. In case your car dips and swerves under braking, then it could severely decrease your control over the car that can be dangerous and especially under wet weather. If your Chevrolet C1500 rattles and rocks over bumps, railway tracks or uneven surfaces, then there is a high possibility that your shocks are worn out. Along with having an unpleasant ride, this rocking and rattling could be putting unwanted pressure on other components and should be replaced as fast as possible.

I have asked the GM dealer OEM shock absorbers and they no longer have such available. I searched the web and many sites on the search function indicate they have such, but when getting to the nitty-gritty, they don't have in stock. PartsGeek has the items in stock. Further, they have Monroe shocks, which for my 68 years of living in the USA are the BEST!
