When To Get 1993 Ford Escort Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1993 Ford Escort, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Escort feels bouncy, leans 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 1993 Ford Escort 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Escort suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ford Escort suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Ford Escort

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 Ford Escort’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1993 Ford Escort’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ford Escort shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Escort’s 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.

1993 Escort Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Escort? 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 connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford Escort power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Escort’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
