Does Your 1990 Dodge Caravan Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Dodge Caravan, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Caravan jolts, sways 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 1990 Dodge Caravan 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Dodge Caravan suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Dodge Caravan Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Dodge Caravan 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Caravan’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge Caravan shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Caravan’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Caravan Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Dodge Caravan get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When should I have my Dodge Caravan power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Caravan’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
