Whether it's off-roading, towing, or carrying heavy luggage for a family outing, your hulking Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is able to do what you need it to do because of its durable shock absorber and strut assembly. This full-size pickup truck is supported by coiled springs that cushion road bumps and vibrations. These springs are steadied by shock absorbers, thus keeping your Chevrolet Silverado from bouncing excessively. Unfortunately, even the mightiest components wear out in time. You will know something's wrong when every road bump is sharply felt and your Silverado starts bouncing comically like a toddler's amusement ride. Such a problem can even lead to serious handling difficulties that could result in an accident. Bring back the Herculean capacities of your Chevrolet Silverado by replacing its shock absorber and strut assembly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • How can an aftermarket shock absorber and strut assembly improve the performance of a Chevrolet Silverado 1500?
    Answer: Aftermarket shock absorbers can allow a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to carry far heavier loads over rougher terrain than its original shocks could handle. Adjustable shock absorbers, for example, can be tuned to allow the Silverado to carry up 30 times more weight than its factory shocks can sustain. Even for normal driving applications, the right kind of performance shock absorbers have been known to give a more stable ride and improve fuel efficiency. Finally, a high-quality shock absorber and strut assembly can save money in the long run by lasting much longer than the original assembly did.
  • How much would a Chevrolet Silverado shock absorber and strut assembly cost?
    Answer: The price of a new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 shock absorber and strut assembly varies depending on the type and application, ranging anywhere from $35 to well over $200. The most expensive ones are recommended for off-road use. Some of these are the triple-tube 9-way adjustable shock absorbers.
  • What are the signs that the shock absorber and strut assembly on a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 needs to be replaced?
    Answer: Although some guides recommend replacing the shock absorber and strut assembly every 30,000 or 60,000 miles, it is safer to take action at the first signs of trouble. These signs include quickly worn-out tires, hydraulic fluid leaking from the struts, and the Silverado sitting lower than usual. While driving, the symptoms include poor handling, clunking or rattling noises, severely bumpy ride quality, and prolonged up-and-down bouncing. The coiled springs and the shock absorbers can be tested in the garage by pushing down and releasing each corner of the Chevrolet Silverado. Weak resistance to the downward push indicates weak suspension springs. Bouncing more than once after releasing the corner indicates malfunctioning shock absorbers.
