Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2008 Lincoln MKX

Not sure when or if your Lincoln MKX’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2008 Lincoln MKX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2008 Lincoln MKX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your MKX jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Lincoln MKX in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your MKX 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 MKX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln MKX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Lincoln MKX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2008 Lincoln MKX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Lincoln MKX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Lincoln MKX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2008 Lincoln MKX Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKX's steering and 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln MKX? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When does Lincoln MKX power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
