1983 Town Car Lincoln Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1983 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Lincoln Town Car, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Town Car jolts, leans 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 1983 Lincoln Town Car in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Town Car’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 Town Car

Your 1983 Lincoln Town Car’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Town Car’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lincoln Town Car shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Lincoln Town Car’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1983 Town Car 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lincoln Town Car 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. 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 Town Car power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Town Car is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Lincoln's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
