Does Your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Explorer Sport Trac bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac in for suspension and steering service. 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Ford Explorer Sport Trac’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Explorer Sport Trac Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac suspension system. 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 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Ford Explorer Sport Trac shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Ford Explorer Sport Trac’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
