2012 Ford E-150 Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Ford E-150 due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2012 Ford E-150 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 Ford E-150, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your E-150 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Ford E-150, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-150 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Ford E-150 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2012 Ford E-150’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ford E-150 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Ford E-150’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 E-150 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford E-150? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford E-150 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
