Is It Time For 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Marquis feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Grand Marquis suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercury Grand Marquis’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.

Mercury Grand Marquis Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercury Grand Marquis shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Marquis’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Grand Marquis Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Marquis's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercury Grand Marquis? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Mercury intended.
  • When should I have my Mercury Grand Marquis power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Marquis is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
