Does Your 1990 Ford Escort Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 Ford Escort, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Escort 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 1990 Ford Escort 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 Escort steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Escort Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Ford Escort 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Ford Escort shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ford Escort shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Ford Escort’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Escort Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Escort's steering and 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Ford Escort 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford Escort power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Escort’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
