Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2002 Lincoln Navigator

When should you have your 2002 Lincoln Navigator suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2002 Lincoln Navigator Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2002 Lincoln Navigator, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Navigator jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Lincoln Navigator, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Navigator suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Navigator 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 Navigator Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Lincoln Navigator suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2002 Lincoln Navigator’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lincoln Navigator shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Navigator’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Navigator Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lincoln's 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln Navigator? 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.
  • When does Lincoln Navigator power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Navigator’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
