Does Your 1998 Dodge B1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Dodge B1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your B1500 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Dodge B1500 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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 parts of your Dodge B1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Dodge B1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1998 Dodge B1500’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Dodge B1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Dodge B1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Dodge B1500 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1998 B1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my B1500'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. 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 B1500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Dodge B1500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your B1500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
