1986 Mark VII Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1986 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII, 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 Mark VII feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your Lincoln Mark VII’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Mark VII shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Mark VII Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Mark VII's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lincoln Mark VII? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln Mark VII 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 Mark VII’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
