2000 Dodge Ram Van 1500

Asked by Feb 24, 2013 at 06:30 PM about the 2000 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Greetings, I believe I have a suspension problem but I'm not totally sure. When I travel over a bumpy or cobblestone road, the van sounds and squeaks like a covered wagon from the old west. The ride is also rocky. I had the rear shocks replaced a few months ago, but that did nothing for the problem. I'm afraid to go to a dealer because of being ripped. But I don't know where to go to get the problem addressed. I'd like to keep the van a lot longer. Any suggestions? Thanks

It could be your bushings. But please don't take it to a dealer. Saves some cash and find a local mechanic that you can get referrals from or a truck auto shop that specializes in suspensions. Google is your friend.

grease the frontend all zirk fittings, spray the hell out of rubber swaybar bushings with wd40 or other like.and oil the leaf springs all leafs load on, used oil even lower your tire pressure to a minium, use some of that wd on rubber seals at doors too! front shock shafts can squeek sometime and a bad balljoint ,watch that one
