2005 LS Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

2005 Lincoln LS Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2005 Lincoln LS suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2005 Lincoln LS Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2005 Lincoln LS, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your LS bounces, 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 2005 Lincoln LS in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your LS steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 2005 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 limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up 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, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Lincoln LS shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LS’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 LS Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LS's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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 connect with the road how 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
