Does Your 1996 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Lincoln Town Car, 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 Town Car bounces, 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 1996 Lincoln Town Car in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Town Car suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lincoln Town Car

Your 1996 Lincoln Town Car’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Lincoln Town Car’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lincoln Town Car shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Lincoln Town Car suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Town Car's steering and suspension?

  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 connect with the road how Lincoln intended.
  • Does my Lincoln Town Car power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Town Car’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Lincoln's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
