Does Your 2010 Dodge Dakota Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2010 Dodge Dakota, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Dakota bounces, drifts 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 2010 Dodge Dakota, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock dampeners, 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 steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Dodge Dakota’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Dodge Dakota Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Dodge Dakota’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2010 Dodge Dakota’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Dodge Dakota shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 Dodge Dakota’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2010 Dakota Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Dakota's steering and 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge Dakota? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Dodge Dakota power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Dakota is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
