When To Get 2011 Ram 2500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2011 Ram 2500, 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 2500 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 Ram 2500 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 2500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Ram 2500’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 2500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Ram 2500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ram up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2011 Ram 2500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ram 2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Ram 2500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2011 2500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 2500's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Ram 2500 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.
  • When should I have my Ram 2500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 2500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Ram service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
