When To Get 2000 Ford Excursion Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2000 Ford Excursion, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Excursion bounces, 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 2000 Ford Excursion in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Excursion 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 Excursion Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2000 Ford Excursion’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Excursion’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford Excursion shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2000 Ford Excursion suspension 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.

2000 Excursion Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford Excursion? 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.
  • Does my Ford Excursion 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 Excursion’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Ford Excursion bouncing excessively? Excessive bouncing in your Ford Excursion might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my Excursion front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Excursion combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What do worn Ford Excursion shocks feel like? Worn Excursion shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Excursion might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Excursion shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
