2016 MKT Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2016 Lincoln MKT Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2016 Lincoln MKT, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your MKT feels bouncy, 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 2016 Lincoln MKT in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MKT suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lincoln MKT suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln MKT Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Lincoln MKT suspension system. 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 getting your 2016 Lincoln MKT’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Lincoln MKT suspension 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 2016 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 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.
  • Why should my Lincoln MKT get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • When should I have my Lincoln MKT power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your MKT’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
