2017 Ram 2500 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Ram 2500 due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2017 Ram 2500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2017 Ram 2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 2500 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2017 Ram 2500, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 2500 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 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

Your 2017 Ram 2500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 2500’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Ram 2500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 2500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 2500 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ram 2500? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 2500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 2500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Ram service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
