Is It Time For 2005 Ford E-350 Super Duty Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Ford E-350 Super Duty, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your E-350 Super Duty feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Ford E-350 Super Duty in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Super Duty suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford E-350 Super Duty

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Ford E-350 Super Duty’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your E-350 Super Duty’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Ford E-350 Super Duty shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Ford E-350 Super Duty suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 E-350 Super Duty Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Super Duty? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford E-350 Super Duty power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your E-350 Super Duty’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why does my Ford E-350 Super Duty bounce so much? Excessive bouncing in your Ford E-350 Super Duty might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my E-350 Super Duty front end dip forward when I brake? The forward dip in the front end of your E-350 Super Duty when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Ford E-350 Super Duty are bad? Worn E-350 Super Duty shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your E-350 Super Duty might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your E-350 Super Duty shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
