2003 Lincoln LS Suspension Service & Repair

2003 Lincoln LS Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Lincoln recommend steering and suspension service for 2003 Lincoln LSs?

Does Your 2003 Lincoln LS Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2003 Lincoln LS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your LS feels bouncy, drifts 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 2003 Lincoln LS in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lincoln LS Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Lincoln LS suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your LS’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Lincoln LS shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 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.

2003 LS Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln LS? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Lincoln LS power steering fluid need to be 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 top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
