The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your Lincoln Mark VIII suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lincoln Mark VIII Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln Mark VIII shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
