When To Get 2010 Ford Escape Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2010 Ford Escape, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Escape feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Ford Escape 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, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Escape suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ford Escape 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 Escape Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Ford Escape suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Escape’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, 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 2010 Ford Escape suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 Escape Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Ford Escape get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford Escape power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Escape is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
