1983 E-350 Econoline Ford Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your E-350 Econoline jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system 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 parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your E-350 Econoline suspension system needs repair, 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 Ford E-350 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-350 Econoline Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford E-350 Econoline shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Ford E-350 Econoline suspension 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 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 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford E-350 Econoline? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford E-350 Econoline power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your E-350 Econoline is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
