1997 Expedition Ford Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1997 Ford Expedition Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1997 Ford Expedition, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Expedition feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Ford Expedition, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Expedition 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 Expedition Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Ford Expedition’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Ford Expedition shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ford Expedition shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Ford Expedition’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Expedition Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 Expedition 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 the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When should I have my Ford Expedition power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Expedition’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Ford service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
