Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Ford EXP

Is It Time For 1987 Ford EXP Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Ford EXP, 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 EXP jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Ford EXP, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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.

Ford EXP Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Ford EXP’s suspension. 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 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 EXP’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ford EXP shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Ford EXP suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1987 Ford EXP Steering & Suspension

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Ford EXP? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford EXP 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 EXP’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
