Does Your 2009 Mercury Mountaineer Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2009 Mercury Mountaineer, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Mountaineer feels bouncy, pulls 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 2009 Mercury Mountaineer in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mercury Mountaineer suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercury Mountaineer

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Mercury Mountaineer’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 getting your 2009 Mercury Mountaineer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Mercury Mountaineer shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Mercury Mountaineer suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Mercury Mountaineer Steering & Suspension

  • 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercury Mountaineer? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mercury intended.
  • When should I have my Mercury Mountaineer power steering fluid 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’ll top it off per Mercury's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
