Is It Time For 1993 Ford E-350 Econoline Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1993 Ford E-350 Econoline, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your E-350 Econoline bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 Ford E-350 Econoline in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford E-350 Econoline Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 Ford E-350 Econoline’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E-350 Econoline’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, 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 1993 Ford E-350 Econoline suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
