2009 300 Chrysler Steering & Suspension Services

2009 Chrysler 300 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2009 Chrysler 300 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2009 Chrysler 300 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Chrysler 300, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 300 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Chrysler 300 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your 300 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chrysler 300

Your 2009 Chrysler 300’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Chrysler 300’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chrysler 300 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Chrysler 300’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 300 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 300's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chrysler 300? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chrysler 300 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 300’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Chrysler service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
