Is It Time For 1983 Dodge D350 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1983 Dodge D350, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your D350 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 1983 Dodge D350 in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your D350 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your D350 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge D350

Your 1983 Dodge D350’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Dodge D350’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Dodge D350 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Dodge D350’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Dodge D350 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why should my Dodge D350 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 come into contact with the road in the way Dodge intended.
  • When should I have my Dodge D350 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
