2012 Lincoln MKT Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2012 Lincoln MKT Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Lincoln MKT, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your MKT jolts, leans 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 2012 Lincoln MKT in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your Lincoln MKT’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln MKT

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Lincoln MKT suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Lincoln MKT shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Lincoln 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 2012 Lincoln MKT 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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. If your MKT is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
