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.
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.
