We'll get to the root of the problem 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon

Your 1988 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly.

These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
