1986 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1986 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Lincoln Town Car, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Town Car jolts, sways 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 1986 Lincoln Town Car in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Lincoln Town Car’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Town Car Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Lincoln Town Car’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lincoln up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Town Car’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln Town Car shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Lincoln Town Car’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
