When does Dodge recommend steering and suspension service for 2013 Dodge Journeys?

Does Your 2013 Dodge Journey Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2013 Dodge Journey, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Journey jolts, pulls 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 2013 Dodge Journey in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Journey steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge Journey

Your 2013 Dodge Journey’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2013 Dodge Journey’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Dodge Journey shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Dodge Journey’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2013 Journey Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge Journey? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Dodge Journey power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Journey’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
