Does Your 2009 Lincoln MKZ Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2009 Lincoln MKZ, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MKZ feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Lincoln MKZ in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your MKZ suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lincoln MKZ suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln MKZ Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Lincoln MKZ’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Lincoln MKZ shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lincoln MKZ shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your MKZ’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Lincoln MKZ Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln MKZ? 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 connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • When should I have my Lincoln MKZ power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
