Is It Time For 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your E-350 Econoline Club Wagon jolts, drifts 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 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your E-350 Econoline Club Wagon steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s shocks and struts replaced 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’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-350 Econoline Club Wagon Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my E-350 Econoline Club Wagon's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why should my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon power steering fluid 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’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
