1989 Aerostar Ford Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1989 Ford Aerostar Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1989 Ford Aerostar, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Aerostar feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Ford Aerostar in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford Aerostar 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.

Ford Aerostar Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1989 Ford Aerostar’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Aerostar’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Ford Aerostar shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Aerostar’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1989 Aerostar Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Aerostar's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Ford Aerostar? 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 Ford intended.
  • When does Ford Aerostar power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Aerostar’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
