2011 MKT Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2011 Lincoln MKT Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2011 Lincoln MKT, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MKT feels bouncy, 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 2011 Lincoln MKT, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MKT suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Lincoln MKT 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 MKT Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2011 Lincoln MKT’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MKT’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MKT’s 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.

Questions About 2011 Lincoln MKT Steering & Suspension

  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln MKT? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln MKT power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
