2016 Ram 3500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2016 Ram 3500 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2016 Ram 3500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2016 Ram 3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 3500 jolts, pulls 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 2016 Ram 3500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ram 3500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ram 3500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2016 Ram 3500’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. 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 2016 Ram 3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ram 3500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2016 Ram 3500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2016 Ram 3500 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ram 3500? 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.
  • When does Ram 3500 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 3500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ram's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
