Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Lincoln Mark VII

Does Your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Mark VII feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Lincoln Mark VII 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 VII Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Lincoln Mark VII shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Mark VII shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
