Is It Time For 1998 Lincoln Town Car Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 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 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Lincoln Town Car 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.

Lincoln Town Car Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Lincoln Town Car’s suspension. 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 1998 Lincoln Town Car’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 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.
  • 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Lincoln Town Car power steering fluid 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 follow Lincoln service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
