When To Get 2009 Ford Escape Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2009 Ford Escape, 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 Escape bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Ford Escape 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford Escape Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 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 2009 Ford Escape’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Ford Escape shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Ford Escape suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Escape Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Escape's steering and 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford Escape? 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 connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford Escape power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
