When To Get 2002 Ford Escort Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2002 Ford Escort, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Escort bounces, sways 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 2002 Ford Escort, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford Escort suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Escort Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Ford Escort’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Escort’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford Escort shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Escort’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Escort Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 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 Escort? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Escort power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
