1989 Ford E-150 Econoline Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your E-150 Econoline bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your E-150 Econoline steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-150 Econoline Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E-150 Econoline’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Ford E-150 Econoline shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 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.

1989 E-150 Econoline Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my E-150 Econoline's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 should my Ford E-150 Econoline get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Ford E-150 Econoline power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your E-150 Econoline’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
