2017 MKT Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2017 Lincoln MKT Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2017 Lincoln MKT, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your MKT jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 Lincoln MKT in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your MKT steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lincoln MKT Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Lincoln MKT’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2017 Lincoln MKT shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Lincoln MKT suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2017 Lincoln MKT Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKT's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 should I have my Lincoln MKT power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few 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.
