2016 Ram 1500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Ram 1500 due for service yet?

When To Get 2016 Ram 1500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2016 Ram 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 1500 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Ram 1500 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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’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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Ram 1500 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ram up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2016 Ram 1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ram 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 1500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2016 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ram 1500? 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 the tires connect with the road how Ram intended.
  • When should I have my Ram 1500 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 1500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ram's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
