Chevrolet Express 1500 Replacement Shocks Information


The Chevrolet Express 1500 is a heavy-duty, durable cargo van that not only get the job done, but they get the job done with excellent towing and gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) numbers, comfort and great features. But with a max towing weight of 6,500 lbs, your Chevy Express 1500 needs to be functioning at full capacity, especially its suspension system. Shocks are a vital part of ensuring your cargo van can without any obstacle put in front of it. Shocks can help maximize the performance of your vehicle; they create a more comfortable ride by absorbing the bumps and dips in the road; and they create a safer ride for all parties. It's necessary that your shocks are up to date and working at full capacity for not only a smooth ride, but for the overall safety of the vehicle.

Research on Shocks for Chevrolet Express 1500

There's no substitute for working shocks. Without a good suspension, your van will bounce around like a toy and everyone inside will feel shaken and rattled. Your cargo will be affected too. Even the best of shock absorbers will wear out after a few years. How soon depends on the condition of the roads you most often drive on. Shocks can wear prematurely, so regardless of how long it's been since the last replacement, they need to be serviced if there's excess noise, bouncing, and vibration or if the vehicle doesn't handle quite the same.

Signs Your Shocks Have Gone Bad

The piston seal or valving of even the best shocks for Chevy Express van models will wear out. If the internal flow of fluid isn't being properly managed, there can be intense vibrations with every bump in the road. You'll feel these in your seat and even through the steering wheel. The rattling, clunking, or other repetitive sounds can get quite loud too. Shocks have a way of letting you know they're wearing out, which gives you ample opportunity to decide on going to a mechanic.

In the case of bad Chevy Express front shocks, the vehicle may swerve when you apply the brakes. Irregular piston movement is the cause, and the van may even nosedive when you brake because the vehicle's weight will shift more without the usual support. It may even take longer to stop the vehicle. In the case of bad rear shocks, accelerating can cause the van to squat, and the rear frame or bumper may even hit the ground at times. Also, be on the lookout for visible signs of trouble. These include uneven tire tread wear patterns, fluid leaks from the 1500 or Chevy Express 2500 shocks, or cracked or broken bushings (seen during an inspection). A bad bushing can cause a tapping sound while driving as well.

How Long Do Shocks Last on a Car?

Shock absorbers generally last four to five years. Extreme driving conditions will wear them out sooner. Over time, the motion of the piston within the inner shock absorber tube wears out the seals that run along the interior of the part. There's fluid or gas within the outer cylinder. Shocks are effective at dampening motion, until they wear out and can't compensate for the up and down motion. As a result, the wheels may not stay on the ground and you could lose control of the vehicle.

How Much Does It Cost to Change the Shocks on a Car?

Chevy Express shocks cost around $200 to over $350 for a rear set, if you have a 2006 vehicle. Two front struts/shock absorbers go for $269 to $340 to replace. Pricing isn't that variable from one year to another, but you must consider the labor charged by your mechanic, plus taxes and other fees. In terms of parts, you can really save at PartsGeek.com, where Chevy Express 1500, Chevy Express 3500 shocks, and other auto parts and accessories cost significantly less. A minimal overhead and mission to help customers save means you can better afford to maintain your ride.

Reviewer: Monroe Coil-over shocks

Restored ride height and ride stability. I had my front end aligned while empty. Was noticing some wear beginning on the front tires after loading a layer of tools. Hoping this will take care of it. Of course, I'll realign if necessary.

I love these shocks. Confident of carrying some extra weight with them installed.
