When To Get 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your E-350 Econoline feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your Ford E-350 Econoline’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford E-350 Econoline Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1989 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 getting your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Ford E-350 Econoline shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline’s 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.

Questions About 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's 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 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your E-350 Econoline’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
