Is It Time For 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your E-150 Econoline feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your Ford E-150 Econoline suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford E-150 Econoline Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Ford E-150 Econoline shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline’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.
