1988 Ford Country Squire Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1988 Ford Country Squire Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 Ford Country Squire, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Country Squire bounces, pulls 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 1988 Ford Country Squire in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Country Squire suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ford Country Squire 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 Country Squire Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Ford Country Squire suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Country Squire’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 Country Squire shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Ford Country Squire’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact.
