Ram 1500 Bighorn 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission

Noise in the front passenger side. Took it to Les Schawb for free inspection. They said shock was leaking. Next day Went to a friends house and took off tire and there was a large leak. So I don't have to deal with it later, I am changing all four shocks.

Ram 1500 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,000 miles

I bought my 2006 Dodge Ram new, I don't haul anything with it or drive off road. In 9/09 I had to replace three of the shocks and struts at 33,000 miles, this was covered under the warranty. Now at 43,100 miles the same three shocks and struts are bad, but now I have to pay for it! I am so tired of this....thinking of trading it in!
