1987 Dodge B150 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1987 Dodge B150 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Dodge B150, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your B150 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 1987 Dodge B150 in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Dodge B150’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Dodge B150 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Dodge B150 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Dodge up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Dodge B150 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge B150 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Dodge B150 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 B150 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge B150? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 should I have my Dodge B150 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your B150 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
