2020 Ram 1500 Classic Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Ram 1500 Classic’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, 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 1500 Classic bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper 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 your 1500 Classic suspension system needs repair, 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 Ram 1500 Classic’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.

Ram 1500 Classic Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2020 Ram 1500 Classic shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ram 1500 Classic shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2020 Ram 1500 Classic’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 1500 Classic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 1500 Classic's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ram 1500 Classic? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Ram intended.
  • When should I have my Ram 1500 Classic power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Ram service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
