Research on Shocks for GMC Jimmy
The very first version of the GMC Jimmy was introduced in 1970 as an SUV with a removable hardtop. Certain styling cues in this version were used in the S-Series Jimmy, including the lift glass panel and angled C-pillars. However, this version did not have a removable hardtop. The S-Series naming stopped in 1991, and people referred to the vehicle as the GMC Jimmy until the end of its production.
GMC introduced a four-door version of the GMC Jimmy in March 1990, with a wheelbase increase of 6.5 inches. A painted black insert and one-piece front grille were also included in this version. At first, this model only offered four-wheel drive, but a two-wheel drive became available later the same year. In 1993, the center console changed, and GMC replaced the transmission gearbox. An altered grille and new five-spoke alloy rims were included as options for the two-wheel drive models.
Although the second generation GMC Jimmy debuted in 1994, models from the first generation continued to be produced for some time after that. The interior and exterior of the GMC Jimmy received another facelift in 1998, along with the introduction of a new top-end trim level, the GMC Envoy. The facelift included a new dashboard with ergonomic controls, new headrests at the rear, and standard passenger airbags. Exterior changes included larger door handles and a brand new design for the front grille. A Diamond Edition GMC Jimmy also debuted in the 2000 model year. This new edition, which celebrated 30 years of the Jimmy nameplate, is nearly identical to the Envoy version.
The shocks are the parts of the GMC suspension system that dampen the movement of the springs so that excessive bouncing is controlled. Your GMC Jimmy should be steady and stable at all times, Whether you are braking, accelerating, or turning, you must be able to maintain control over all facets of the drive. Shocks are a key component in keeping your vehicle steady. When braking, if the front end of your vehicle dives, it is an indication that your shocks need to be evaluated, if not replaced. Another sign that your shocks require service is if the rear end of your vehicle squats when you accelerate. Additionally, if you make a turn and the vehicle dips drastically to one side, your shocks may need to be replaced. Bad shocks will make your tires bounce up and down as you drive. Each time the tires hit the ground, bits of rubber can get scraped off. Instead of having a consistent treadwear pattern across the tire, you might have some tread, a smooth patch, some tread, a smooth patch, and so on. This is because the holes left by the missing rubber tend to get smoothed over as you drive.
