1985 Continental Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1985 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Lincoln Continental, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Continental feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Lincoln Continental 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Continental steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Continental Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Lincoln Continental’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Continental’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Continental shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Lincoln Continental suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Continental 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 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 Continental? 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 connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When should I have my Lincoln Continental power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
