Suspension Service & Repair for 2019 Lincoln MKT

When To Get 2019 Lincoln MKT Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2019 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. Perhaps your MKT feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2019 Lincoln MKT in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your MKT steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln MKT

Your 2019 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Lincoln MKT shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MKT’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2019 MKT Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why should my Lincoln MKT get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln MKT power steering fluid need to be 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 top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
