2010 MKX Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

2010 Lincoln MKX Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2010 Lincoln MKX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2010 Lincoln MKX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MKX jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2010 Lincoln MKX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Lincoln MKX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln MKX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MKX’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln MKX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Lincoln MKX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 MKX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKX's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Lincoln MKX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln MKX power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
