2018 Escape Ford Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2018 Ford Escape Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2018 Ford Escape, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Escape feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 Ford Escape, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 Ford Escape suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2018 Ford Escape shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ford Escape shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Ford Escape suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2018 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford Escape? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford Escape power steering fluid 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
