When should you have your 2008 Lincoln Mark LT suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2008 Lincoln Mark LT Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Lincoln Mark LT, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Mark LT feels bouncy, sways 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 2008 Lincoln Mark LT, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 Lincoln Mark LT’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 Mark LT

Your 2008 Lincoln Mark LT’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 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 Mark LT’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Lincoln Mark LT shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Lincoln Mark LT’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Mark LT Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 should my Lincoln Mark LT 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When does Lincoln Mark LT power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Mark LT is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
