Suspension & Steering

Shocks and struts do more than provide a comfortable and enjoyable ride, these components also help to make sure your vehicle is handling securely. A properly maintained steering wheel and suspension system keep you in control of your vehicle. The suspension system, including your shock absorbers or struts, coil springs and linkage, help support your vehicle's weight and helps keep your tires in contact with the road.

Maintenance Includes:

  • Inspection of system components
  • Check and top-off of power steering fluid
  • Ball joint lubrication

Advantages of Motorcraft Shocks and Struts:

  • Reduce wheel bounce, helping provide a smooth ride
  • Provide consistent control
  • Full range of products for almost every vehicle application and driving situation

What are shocks  & struts?

Shocks and struts help absorb  the unevenness of the road while keeping your wheels firmly  planted beneath you or simply keep your car from bouncing  and are crucial to your steering and braking systems. Depending  on their condition, they can also greatly affect the ride  and comfort.

How  do I know they need replacement?

Fact is: everyday driving  puts a beating on your suspension: rough roads, bumps,  and especially pot holes can damage them. If this happens,  you may feel, excessive bouncing, bottoming out, or  nosediving when stopping, see oily fluid around them,  notice unusual tire wear, or when you do the bounce  test and it continues to bounce more than one or two  times, it may be time for new shocks or struts.


How often  should they be inspected?

It is recommended you have  them inspected at every oil change.
