Is It Time For 2012 Ram 1500 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2012 Ram 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 1500 feels bouncy, sways 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 2012 Ram 1500 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 1500 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.

Ram 1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Ram 1500 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 1500’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Ram 1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Ram 1500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Ram 1500 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 1500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why should my Ram 1500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Ram 1500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 1500 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ram's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
