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.
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.
