Does Your 2002 Ford Crown Victoria Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 Ford Crown Victoria, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Crown Victoria bounces, drifts 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 2002 Ford Crown Victoria in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Crown Victoria suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2002 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Ford Crown Victoria’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford Crown Victoria shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Crown Victoria’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Crown Victoria Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Crown Victoria's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford Crown Victoria? 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 the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford Crown Victoria 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 Crown Victoria is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
