2013 MKT Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2013 Lincoln MKT Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Lincoln MKT, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MKT bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 Lincoln MKT in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln MKT

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Lincoln MKT’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MKT’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Lincoln MKT’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2013 Lincoln MKT Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKT's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 MKT? 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 MKT power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MKT is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
