Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Dodge B150

When To Get 1989 Dodge B150 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Dodge B150, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your B150 bounces, 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 1989 Dodge B150 in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge B150 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1989 Dodge B150’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 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 indicators of worn Dodge B150 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your B150’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1989 B150 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 alert you to the need for 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 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 connect with the road how Dodge intended.
  • Does my Dodge B150 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your B150’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
