When To Get 2012 Ford E-250 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 Ford E-250, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your E-250 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 Ford E-250 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your E-250 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your E-250 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford E-250 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Ford E-250 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E-250’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford E-250 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Ford E-250 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2012 E-250 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why should my Ford E-250 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford E-250 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your E-250’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
