Does Your 2001 Lincoln LS Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2001 Lincoln LS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your LS jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Lincoln LS in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your LS suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Lincoln LS suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln LS

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Lincoln LS’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 LS’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Lincoln LS shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Lincoln LS suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
