Between potholes, battered pavement (and maybe even the occasional swiped curb), your truck’s suspension will take plenty of hits throughout the life of your vehicle. We all know wheel alignment is an important part of your regular vehicle maintenance schedule, but how often should you come in for an alignment on your Ram truck? That’s the question we’ve set out to answer.
How Often Do I Need an Alignment?
The best resource for finding out when your truck is due for an alignment is your owner’s manual. You should always check your maintenance manual for your vehicle’s specific recommended mileage and time intervals, but for reference Ram will generally recommend an alignment every 5,000 or 10,000 miles.
How often your truck needs to be brought in for an alignment can also vary based on your driving habits. If you have a long commute and/or have to drive down battered pavement or gravel roads regularly, alignments may be necessary more often.
What Are the Warning Signs of Alignment Issues?
One of the telltale signs of alignment issues is drifting. If your truck veers to the right or left while your steering wheel is straight, the root cause is most likely alignment related. You may also be experiencing alignment issues if you notice uneven tire wear or if you notice your steering wheel is crooked while driving straight. If something feels off, your local Ram dealer can help you determine if an alignment is needed.
