When To Get 2002 Ford Excursion Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2002 Ford Excursion, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Excursion jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 Ford Excursion in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Ford Excursion suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Excursion Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2002 Ford Excursion’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Excursion’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Ford Excursion shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Excursion’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2002 Ford Excursion Steering & Suspension

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford Excursion? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Ford Excursion power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Excursion’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
