Does Your 1988 Dodge D150 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Dodge D150, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your D150 feels bouncy, drifts 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 1988 Dodge D150 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your D150 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Dodge D150 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge D150

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Dodge D150’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Dodge D150 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge D150 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Dodge D150 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1988 D150 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge D150? 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 the tires connect with the road how Dodge intended.
  • When should I have my Dodge D150 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your D150 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
