Is It Time For 2005 Ford Escape Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Ford Escape, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Escape jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Ford Escape in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Escape steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Escape Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Ford Escape suspension system. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2005 Ford Escape shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford Escape shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Ford Escape’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.

2005 Escape Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford Escape? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford Escape 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 Escape’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
