Does Your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your E-250 Econoline Club Wagon feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your E-250 Econoline Club Wagon suspension system needs repair, 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-250 Econoline Club Wagon 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-250 Econoline Club Wagon Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain.
