Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Lincoln Mark VII

When To Get 1988 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Lincoln Mark VII, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Mark VII jolts, leans 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 1988 Lincoln Mark VII, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Mark VII suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lincoln Mark VII suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 VII

Your 1988 Lincoln Mark VII’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Lincoln Mark VII’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Mark VII Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Lincoln Mark VII power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change.
