Suspension Service & Repair for 2002 Lincoln LS

2002 Lincoln LS Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2002 Lincoln LS suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2002 Lincoln LS Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2002 Lincoln LS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your LS feels bouncy, sways 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 2002 Lincoln LS in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel 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.

Lincoln LS Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Lincoln LS suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, 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 2002 Lincoln LS 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.

2002 LS Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lincoln LS? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • When should I have my Lincoln LS power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your LS is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
