Does Your 1986 Mercury Lynx Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Mercury Lynx, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Lynx jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Mercury Lynx 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Lynx suspension system needs repair, 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 your Mercury Lynx’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercury Lynx

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Mercury Lynx’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1986 Mercury Lynx shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mercury Lynx shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Mercury Lynx suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 Lynx Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercury's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercury Lynx? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Mercury Lynx 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
