Does Your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Crown Victoria feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 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 Crown Victoria steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford Crown Victoria Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Ford Crown Victoria shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Ford Crown Victoria shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1998 Ford Crown Victoria Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Crown Victoria's steering and suspension?

Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 should I have my Ford Crown Victoria power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Crown Victoria’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
