2005 Lincoln Aviator Maintenance Schedule

When does Lincoln recommend steering and suspension service for 2005 Lincoln Aviators?

Does Your 2005 Lincoln Aviator Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2005 Lincoln Aviator, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Aviator feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Lincoln Aviator, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Lincoln Aviator suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lincoln Aviator Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Lincoln Aviator suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Lincoln Aviator’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln Aviator shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Aviator’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Aviator Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln'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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lincoln Aviator? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln Aviator power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Aviator’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
