Is It Time For 2011 Dodge Caliber Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Dodge Caliber, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Caliber feels bouncy, drifts 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 2011 Dodge Caliber in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Caliber’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge Caliber Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Dodge Caliber suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2011 Dodge Caliber’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Dodge Caliber shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Dodge Caliber’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Caliber Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Dodge's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge Caliber? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Dodge intended.
  • When should I have my Dodge Caliber power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Caliber is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
