Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon

Does Your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon, 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 E-150 Econoline Club Wagon 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 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon? 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 E-150 Econoline Club Wagon power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
