Does Your 1983 Dodge D250 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Dodge D250, 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 D250 bounces, leans 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 1983 Dodge D250 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your D250 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Dodge D250 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.

Dodge D250 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Dodge D250 suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Dodge up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Dodge D250 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Dodge D250 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Dodge D250 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 D250 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my D250's steering and 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Dodge D250? 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.
  • Does my Dodge D250 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your D250’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
