1996 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1996 Lincoln Continental Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1996 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, sways 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 1996 Lincoln Continental in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Lincoln Continental shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Lincoln Continental shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Continental’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 Continental Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
