Is It Time For 1998 Dodge B3500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Dodge B3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your B3500 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Dodge B3500 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 B3500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge B3500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Dodge B3500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1998 Dodge B3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Dodge B3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Dodge B3500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 B3500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge's 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Dodge B3500? 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 B3500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your B3500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
