Shocks & Struts Service

Your shocks and struts are an essential vehicle safety component—they help keep your tires in contact with the road and affect how your vehicle handles. To stay safe, you don't want to wait until they're bad or worn to replace them.

A little preventative maintenance goes a long way. Bringing your vehicle in for regular maintenance will help our technicians spot a suspension part that needs servicing before you're even at risk.

Spotting Worn Shocks or Struts

Your might need new shocks or struts if you notice any of the following:

  • Feel your vehicle bouncing often
  • Feel your tires losing their grip on the road
  • See excessive tire wear
  • Feel the handling or braking ability of your vehicle decrease
  • Hear vibration or noise
  • See fluid leaking from your shock absorbers
  • See dents, holes or damage to any of your shock and strut components

If you notice any of these symptoms, you should schedule a brake inspection at your local Ford or Lincoln Mercury Dealership immediately.

Choosing the Right Shocks and Struts

The most important rule of thumb to follow when having suspension parts replaced on your vehicle is to make sure they meet or exceed the original equipment standards.

Motorcraft® shocks and struts are engineered and designed specifically for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. They meet original equipment standards, which means you get the same level of quality and safety out of your suspension as you did when you first bought your vehicle.
