When To Get 2001 Ford Expedition Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2001 Ford Expedition, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Expedition feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Ford Expedition 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Ford Expedition 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 Expedition Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2001 Ford Expedition’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Ford Expedition’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Ford Expedition shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Expedition’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 2001 Ford Expedition 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford Expedition power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Expedition is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Ford's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
