Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2018 Ram 1500

When should you have your 2018 Ram 1500 suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2018 Ram 1500 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2018 Ram 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 1500 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Ram 1500 in for steering and suspension services. 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 1500 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ram 1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2018 Ram 1500’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. 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 getting your 2018 Ram 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ram 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 1500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 1500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Ram 1500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Ram 1500 power steering fluid need to be 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 can fill it per Ram's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
