2001 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2001 Lincoln Continental

Is the steering and suspension system in your Lincoln Continental due for service yet?

Does Your 2001 Lincoln Continental Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2001 Lincoln Continental, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Continental jolts, 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 2001 Lincoln Continental, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Continental Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2001 Lincoln Continental’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2001 Lincoln Continental shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Lincoln Continental shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Lincoln Continental suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2001 Continental Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 Continental is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
