When To Get 2012 Ram C/V Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2012 Ram C/V, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C/V feels bouncy, sways 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 2012 Ram C/V, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C/V steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ram C/V

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Ram C/V’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2012 Ram C/V’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ram C/V shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Ram C/V’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2012 C/V Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C/V'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 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Ram C/V power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C/V is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ram's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why does my Ram C/V bounce so much? Excessive bouncing in your Ram C/V might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my C/V tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your C/V's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • What do worn Ram C/V shocks feel like? Worn C/V shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your C/V might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your C/V shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
