Is It Time For 2006 Mercury Montego Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Mercury Montego, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Montego jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 Mercury Montego in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock dampeners, coil 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 car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mercury Montego’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercury Montego Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2006 Mercury Montego’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Mercury Montego shock and strut replacement 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 indicators of worn Mercury Montego shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Mercury Montego’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Montego Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercury's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Montego? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Mercury intended.
  • Does my Mercury Montego 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 Montego is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Mercury Montego bouncing excessively? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Montego to bounce more than usual.
  • What can cause the front end of my Montego to dip forward when I apply the brakes? When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Mercury Montego shocks? Worn Montego shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Montego might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Montego shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
