When does Ram recommend steering and suspension service for 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500s?

Does Your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your ProMaster 1500 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 parts of your Ram ProMaster 1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ram ProMaster 1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500’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. 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 getting your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ram ProMaster 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500’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 ProMaster 1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ram's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ram ProMaster 1500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Ram intended.
  • Does my Ram ProMaster 1500 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 ProMaster 1500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ram's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
