When To Get 2005 Dodge Dakota Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2005 Dodge Dakota, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Dakota jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Dodge Dakota in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Dodge Dakota 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 Dakota Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2005 Dodge Dakota’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2005 Dodge Dakota’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Dodge Dakota shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Dodge Dakota’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
