2004 Excursion Ford Steering & Suspension Services

2004 Ford Excursion Maintenance Schedule

When does Ford recommend steering and suspension service for 2004 Ford Excursions?

Does Your 2004 Ford Excursion Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2004 Ford Excursion, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Excursion jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Ford Excursion in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Excursion suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Ford Excursion Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 Ford Excursion 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ford Excursion shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Excursion’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Excursion Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Ford's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Ford Excursion 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 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
