During the first few years you had your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough.

We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy.

Questions About 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
