1996 Ford Bronco Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Ford Bronco’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1996 Ford Bronco Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1996 Ford Bronco, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Bronco bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Ford Bronco in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Ford Bronco’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Bronco Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Ford Bronco suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 Bronco’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Ford Bronco shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Ford Bronco suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1996 Bronco Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford Bronco? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Ford Bronco power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
