Is It Time For 2002 Ford Escape Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2002 Ford Escape, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Escape feels bouncy, sways 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 2002 Ford Escape, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Escape 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 Escape suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford Escape

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Ford Escape suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Ford Escape’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Ford Escape shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Ford Escape 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.

2002 Escape Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 should my Ford Escape get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford Escape power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
