Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 Lincoln MKX

Is It Time For 2017 Lincoln MKX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2017 Lincoln MKX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MKX feels bouncy, leans 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 2017 Lincoln MKX in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln MKX

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2017 Lincoln MKX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln MKX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Lincoln MKX suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 MKX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKX's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lincoln MKX? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When should I have my Lincoln MKX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MKX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
