Is It Time For 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your E-150 Econoline jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-150 Econoline Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Ford E-150 Econoline shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1998 E-150 Econoline Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my E-150 Econoline's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford E-150 Econoline? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Ford E-150 Econoline power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your E-150 Econoline’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
