Is It Time For 1996 Mercury Villager Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Mercury Villager, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Villager bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Mercury Villager in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Villager steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mercury Villager Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Mercury Villager suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Mercury Villager’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mercury Villager shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Villager’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 Villager 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Mercury Villager? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Mercury intended.
  • When should I have my Mercury Villager power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Mercury's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
