When should you have your 2004 Lincoln LS suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2004 Lincoln LS Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2004 Lincoln LS, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your LS feels bouncy, 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 2004 Lincoln LS, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your Lincoln LS’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Lincoln LS’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Lincoln LS’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln LS shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LS’s 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.

2004 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 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 LS 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.
  • Does my Lincoln LS 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
