2019 1500 Ram Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2019 Ram 1500

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

Does Your 2019 Ram 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2019 Ram 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 1500 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 2019 Ram 1500, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 1500 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 1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ram 1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2019 Ram 1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2019 Ram 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2019 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 1500's steering and 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.
  • 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 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 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’ll follow Ram service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
