Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Lincoln Mark VII

Is It Time For 1989 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Mark VII bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Mark VII steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Mark VII Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Mark VII’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Lincoln Mark VII shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Mark VII Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Mark VII's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln Mark VII? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Lincoln Mark VII power steering fluid 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 top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
