2004 Ford Crown Victoria Suspension Service & Repair

2004 Ford Crown Victoria Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2004 Ford Crown Victoria suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2004 Ford Crown Victoria Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 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. Perhaps your Crown Victoria feels bouncy, 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 2004 Ford Crown Victoria in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Crown Victoria suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford Crown Victoria 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 Crown Victoria Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2004 Ford Crown Victoria’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Ford Crown Victoria’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ford Crown Victoria shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Ford Crown Victoria’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Crown Victoria Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Crown Victoria's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 should my Ford Crown Victoria get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford Crown Victoria 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 Crown Victoria is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
