When To Get 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your E-250 Econoline feels bouncy, sways 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 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your E-250 Econoline suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Ford E-250 Econoline’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-250 Econoline Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline’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 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-250 Econoline’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ford E-250 Econoline shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Ford E-250 Econoline’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 E-250 Econoline Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my E-250 Econoline's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford E-250 Econoline? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Ford E-250 Econoline 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 E-250 Econoline’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
