1983 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1983 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Lincoln Continental, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Continental bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Lincoln Continental, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Continental suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Continental steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Continental Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Lincoln Continental’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1983 Lincoln Continental shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Continental shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Lincoln Continental’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1983 Continental Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Lincoln Continental get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Lincoln Continental power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Continental’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
