Does Your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Blackwood feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Blackwood suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Lincoln Blackwood 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 Blackwood Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Blackwood shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Blackwood’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2002 Lincoln Blackwood Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Blackwood? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln Blackwood 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 Blackwood is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
