1983 Lincoln Mark VI Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1983 Lincoln Mark VI Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1983 Lincoln Mark VI, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Mark VI feels bouncy, pulls 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 1983 Lincoln Mark VI in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Lincoln Mark VI 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 Mark VI Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Lincoln Mark VI’s suspension. 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 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 Mark VI’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Mark VI shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Lincoln Mark VI 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.

1983 Mark VI Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Mark VI's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 VI get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • Does my Lincoln Mark VI power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
