Does Your 1985 Dodge B150 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1985 Dodge B150, 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 B150 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Dodge B150, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your B150 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Dodge B150’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge B150 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Dodge B150 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 Dodge up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Dodge B150’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Dodge B150 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Dodge B150’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1985 B150 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my B150's steering and 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Dodge B150? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Dodge intended.
  • Does my Dodge B150 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your B150’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
