Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Lincoln MKX

Does Your 2011 Lincoln MKX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Lincoln MKX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MKX jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Lincoln MKX in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your Lincoln MKX 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 MKX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2011 Lincoln MKX’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 MKX’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lincoln MKX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Lincoln MKX suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2011 MKX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lincoln MKX 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 MKX is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
