1988 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1988 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 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 bounces, sways 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 1988 Lincoln Town Car in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Lincoln Town Car suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lincoln Town Car Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Lincoln Town Car’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Lincoln Town Car shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Lincoln Town Car shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Town Car’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Town Car Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lincoln's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lincoln Town Car? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln Town Car 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 Town Car’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
