2013 C/V Ram Steering & Suspension Services

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2013 Ram C/V

When should you have your 2013 Ram C/V suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2013 Ram C/V Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Ram C/V, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C/V feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2013 Ram C/V 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C/V suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your C/V steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ram C/V Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Ram C/V’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ram up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2013 Ram C/V shock and strut replacement 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 indicators of worn Ram C/V shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2013 Ram C/V suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2013 C/V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C/V's steering and 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.
  • Why should my Ram C/V 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ram intended.
  • Does my Ram C/V power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C/V’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ram's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
