When you first drove your 2018 Lincoln MKX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your MKX bounces, sways 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 2018 Lincoln MKX 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 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 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. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Lincoln MKX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2018 Lincoln MKX suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
