When To Get 2020 Ram 1500 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2020 Ram 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 1500 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2020 Ram 1500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Ram 1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ram 1500

Your 2020 Ram 1500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Ram up off the ground. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ram 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2020 Ram 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.

2020 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ram's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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. 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 does Ram 1500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 1500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ram's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
