2018 MKX Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2018 Lincoln MKX Suspension Need Inspection?

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.

Lincoln MKX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 MKX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MKX's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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? 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your MKX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
