2012 MKS Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2012 Lincoln MKS Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2012 Lincoln MKS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your MKS feels bouncy, 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 2012 Lincoln MKS, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lincoln MKS 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 MKS Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2012 Lincoln MKS’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Lincoln MKS shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln MKS shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Lincoln MKS’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2012 Lincoln MKS Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln MKS? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When does Lincoln MKS power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your MKS is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
