When To Get 1983 Dodge B150 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Dodge B150, 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 B150 feels bouncy, drifts 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 1983 Dodge B150 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your B150 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Dodge B150 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Dodge B150’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Dodge B150’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 signs of worn Dodge B150 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Dodge B150’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1983 B150 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my B150's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Dodge B150 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 Dodge intended.
  • When does Dodge B150 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your B150 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
