Does Your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Mountaineer feels bouncy, pulls 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 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Mountaineer suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mountaineer 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.

Mercury Mountaineer Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer’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 limit vibration and keep your Mercury up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Mercury Mountaineer shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Mountaineer’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Mountaineer Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercury's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercury Mountaineer? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mercury intended.
  • Does my Mercury Mountaineer 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 Mountaineer is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
