When To Get 1986 Ford EXP Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Ford EXP, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your EXP jolts, 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 1986 Ford EXP in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your EXP suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Ford EXP 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 EXP

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Ford EXP’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1986 Ford EXP’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford EXP shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Ford EXP suspension 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.

1986 EXP Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for 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 EXP 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford EXP 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 EXP’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
