2017 Ram 3500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2017 Ram 3500 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2017 Ram 3500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2017 Ram 3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 3500 jolts, 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 2017 Ram 3500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 3500 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 3500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ram 3500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Ram 3500 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Ram 3500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ram 3500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 3500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2017 Ram 3500 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 3500'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 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 3500 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ram intended.
  • Does my Ram 3500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 3500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Ram's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
