Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2010 Lincoln MKZ

When should you have your 2010 Lincoln MKZ suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2010 Lincoln MKZ Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2010 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, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2010 Lincoln MKZ in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at 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 source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Lincoln MKZ’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln MKZ

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2010 Lincoln MKZ’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MKZ’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lincoln MKZ shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Lincoln MKZ 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.

2010 MKZ Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's 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 MKZ? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 MKZ 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 MKZ’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
