When does Chrysler recommend steering and suspension service for 2003 Chrysler 300Ms?

When To Get 2003 Chrysler 300M Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2003 Chrysler 300M, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 300M feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Chrysler 300M in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 300M 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.

Chrysler 300M Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Chrysler 300M suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chrysler up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Chrysler 300M’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chrysler 300M shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Chrysler 300M suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 300M Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chrysler's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Chrysler 300M get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chrysler intended.
  • When should I have my Chrysler 300M power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 300M is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chrysler service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
