Does Your 1993 Mercury Tracer Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1993 Mercury Tracer, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Tracer feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 Mercury Tracer in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Tracer suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Mercury Tracer suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mercury Tracer

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1993 Mercury Tracer suspension system. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Tracer’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Mercury Tracer shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 Mercury Tracer suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1993 Tracer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercury's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Mercury Tracer get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercury Tracer power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Tracer is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mercury service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
