When should you have your 2000 Ford Contour suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2000 Ford Contour Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2000 Ford Contour, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Contour bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2000 Ford Contour in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle 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 Contour suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford Contour Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2000 Ford Contour suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Contour’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford Contour shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Contour’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2000 Ford Contour Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Ford Contour get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Ford Contour power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Contour is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
