When To Get 2005 Ford E-150 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2005 Ford E-150, 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. Perhaps your E-150 feels bouncy, pulls 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 2005 Ford E-150 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Ford E-150 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Ford E-150’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Ford E-150’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford E-150 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Ford E-150’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford E-150 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your E-150 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
