When To Get 1987 Mercury Colony Park Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1987 Mercury Colony Park, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Colony Park feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Mercury Colony Park in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Colony Park steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercury Colony Park

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Mercury Colony Park suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Colony Park’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercury Colony Park shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Mercury Colony Park’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 Colony Park Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercury's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Mercury Colony Park get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercury Colony Park power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
