Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline

Does Your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 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, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford E-250 Econoline 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford E-250 Econoline

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline 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 limit vibration and keep your Ford up 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ford E-250 Econoline shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
