Is It Time For 1991 Ford E-150 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1991 Ford E-150 Econoline, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your E-150 Econoline bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Ford E-150 Econoline, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your E-150 Econoline steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Ford E-150 Econoline suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E-150 Econoline’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford E-150 Econoline shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your E-150 Econoline’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 E-150 Econoline Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Ford E-150 Econoline power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your E-150 Econoline is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
