The Dodge Ram 1500 is engineered to move heaven and earth, so it needs a high-quality, well-performing shock absorber and strut assembly to provide it with better handling, especially when negotiating with the harshest of terrains. Made up of various components, this assembly ensures a more comfortable travel by absorbing the up-and-down movements of the springs every time your truck hits a road bump. Without a working Dodge Ram 1500 shock and strut assembly, the vehicle will bounce excessively, making you feel uncomfortable. This will also cause premature wearing out of steering, suspension, and other vehicle components. So as soon as you notice signs of bad struts, have them checked right away and don't think twice in getting a replacement if there's a need for it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • After replacing the struts, does the Dodge Ram 1500 need to be aligned?
    Answer: Yes, it is advisable to do alignments every time replacement struts are installed, but there are exceptions to this. If the automaker didn't provide alignment provisions, or if the alignment angles are not affected by the strut replacement, there's no need for this. Among the applications and cases that do not need alignment are double wishbone, several modified struts, as well as suspension systems that make use of shock absorbers.
  • Are cupped wear pattern on the wheels caused by a worn-out Dodge Ram 1500 shock absorber and strut assembly?
    Answer: Yes, it can be caused by worn-out shocks or struts as well as damaged or worn steering and suspension components. Worn suspension parts, like control arm bushings, ball joints, and wheel bearings, result in irregular cupping patterns. Worn-out shocks or struts, on the other hand, cause a recurring cupping pattern. Other factors that may affect uneven wearing out of tires are the vehicle's alignment settings, the driver's driving habits, and tire pressure settings.
  • How can a Dodge Ram owner determine a bad strut assembly without raising the vehicle with hydraulic jacks?
    Answer: With the A/C system and stereo off, the Dodge Ram 1500 should be driven on a terrain with small dips, pot holes, or speed bumps. While slowly passing on a road obstacle, the driver should take note of excessive bounce in the truck's front or rear wheels. Too much bouncing is a sign of bad struts. It is also important to listen to the struts when going over the obstacles. If unusual noises like knocking, grinding, and scraping are heard, that means the struts have already seen better days and are now in need of replacements. While some replacement Dodge Ram 1500 shock absorber and strut assemblies are sold individually, it is wise to replace the struts in pair to avoid problems with the vehicle's handling.
