Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Lincoln Mark VII

When To Get 1987 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 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. Maybe your Mark VII bounces, pulls 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 1987 Lincoln Mark VII, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 VII’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.

Lincoln Mark VII Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Lincoln Mark VII suspension system. 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 getting your 1987 Lincoln Mark VII’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln Mark VII shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Mark VII’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Mark VII Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lincoln Mark VII get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Lincoln Mark VII 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 Mark VII is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
