When To Get 1991 Dodge Dakota Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1991 Dodge Dakota, 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 Dakota feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Dodge Dakota, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Dakota suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Dakota 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.

Dodge Dakota Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Dodge Dakota 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Dodge up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Dakota’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge Dakota shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Dodge Dakota’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
