2008 Ford Expedition Suspension Service & Repair

2008 Ford Expedition Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2008 Ford Expedition suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2008 Ford Expedition Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Ford Expedition, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Expedition jolts, drifts 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 2008 Ford Expedition in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Expedition Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Ford Expedition suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Ford Expedition shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Ford Expedition shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Ford Expedition suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Ford Expedition? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Ford intended.
  • Does my Ford Expedition power steering fluid need to be checked? 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’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
