Not sure when or if your Lincoln Continental’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 2002 Lincoln Continental Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2002 Lincoln Continental, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Continental bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Lincoln Continental, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Lincoln Continental’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Continental Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Lincoln Continental’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Continental’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln Continental shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Lincoln Continental’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2002 Lincoln Continental Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Continental's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. 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.
  • Does my Lincoln Continental power steering fluid need to be checked? 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.
