Is It Time For 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Chrysler Town & Country, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Town & Country bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Chrysler Town & Country in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Town & Country suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Chrysler Town & Country suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chrysler Town & Country Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Chrysler Town & Country’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Town & Country’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Chrysler Town & Country shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Chrysler Town & Country suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Town & Country Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chrysler's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chrysler Town & Country? 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 Town & Country power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Town & Country’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chrysler's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why does my Chrysler Town & Country bounce so much? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Town & Country tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Town & Country when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Chrysler Town & Country shocks? Worn Town & Country shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Town & Country might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Town & Country shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
