2018 Ford EcoSport Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2018 Ford EcoSport Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Ford EcoSport, 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 EcoSport bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Ford EcoSport, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your EcoSport suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford EcoSport 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.

Ford EcoSport Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Ford EcoSport’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2018 Ford EcoSport shock and strut replacement 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 could all be indicators of worn Ford EcoSport shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Ford EcoSport’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
