Is It Time For 1988 Ford E-350 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Ford E-350 Econoline, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your E-350 Econoline jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Ford E-350 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ford E-350 Econoline 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford E-350 Econoline

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Ford E-350 Econoline suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Ford E-350 Econoline shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ford E-350 Econoline shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Ford E-350 Econoline suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 E-350 Econoline Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my E-350 Econoline's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. 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-350 Econoline power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
