Does Your 2006 Dodge Caravan Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 Dodge Caravan, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Caravan jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Dodge Caravan in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your Caravan steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge Caravan

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Dodge Caravan suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2006 Dodge Caravan Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.

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 does Dodge Caravan power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Caravan’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
