When To Get 2017 Lincoln MKZ Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2017 Lincoln MKZ, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your MKZ feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Lincoln MKZ, bring it 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your MKZ steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln MKZ Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 Lincoln MKZ’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2017 Lincoln MKZ’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln MKZ shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 Lincoln MKZ suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2017 MKZ Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 should my Lincoln MKZ get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • When does Lincoln MKZ power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your MKZ is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
