Does Your 2008 Dodge Avenger Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2008 Dodge Avenger, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Avenger jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Dodge Avenger 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Dodge Avenger suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge Avenger Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Dodge Avenger’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 Dodge up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Avenger’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge Avenger shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Dodge Avenger 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.

2008 Avenger Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge'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.
  • Why should my Dodge Avenger get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Dodge Avenger power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Avenger is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
