When To Get 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your E-350 Super Duty jolts, leans 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 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty 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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your E-350 Super Duty suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Ford E-350 Super Duty’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 Super Duty Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Ford E-350 Super Duty shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ford E-350 Super Duty shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your E-350 Super Duty’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 E-350 Super Duty Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford E-350 Super Duty? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Ford E-350 Super Duty 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 E-350 Super Duty’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Ford E-350 Super Duty to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your E-350 Super Duty to bounce more than usual.
  • 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.
