Question about 1995 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

I am having suspension/ball joint issues with my 1995 Lincoln Town Car. I have done some research on pricing but just learnt there is both an upper and lower ball joint to this vehicle, by chance can you help me decifer between the two? The ball joint makes a squeeking noise everytime I turn the wheel to the right or left. It is also causing steering issues when I drive the vehicle. I was told by a guy at the Ford dealership this is the beginning issue before the problem gets worse and causes my tire/rim to snap off. I have seen this happen to other vehicles before, but could my issue turn into such catastrophe? If you could please let me know the difference between the two I would greatly appreciate it. From that point I will know what to do, and what parts I will need to purchase in order to do this DIY project. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I appreciate all that you can assist with. -William Wilson IV

Yes it can be dangerous. I had one come off in the drive way and it only had 50,000 miles on it. Ball joints are difficult to do unless you have the right tools and experience. There are a lot of cheap aftermarket parts out there so be careful which parts you get.. Moog seems to be the best.

Bad alignment can really wear out you tires quick to, so I would get it fixed in short order.

How much does it cost to have the front end work done?(Suspension)

Depends on how much needs to be replaced. I had my front end done last month at NTB Woodlands, TX. I had shocks, struts, ball joints (everything but tie rods) $1200.00. Mine is a 1997 Towncar. The tie rods were fine. I also put Michelins back on the car and it changed the ride to almost new and also takes the strain off the front end. I will never buy different tires again. The other tires were hard and actually caused wear and tear on the front end. Do some research and you will find alot of information. Cathy (Spring TX)

Dealer want to change my lower ball joints on my lincoln 2004 towncar for $1100 any cheaper way and is it dangares

I've done front end work. You may need a ball joint press, to remove the lower ball joint off the lower control arm and install or press the new one on. The upper ones you will have to chisel the the tops of the riviets off and drill though them unless they're on with nuts and bolts. It is easier to have the upper control arm off the car to do this also because the upper control bushings may need replacing also. You can get those off with a air chisel and on with a vise and a 5 pound sledge hammer and a sleeve on the bushing.(They make a bushing press which is better.) If you don't have air take the upper arms to a muffler shop. Before I had air, I took my arms to a local tire shop, he took the old ones off and put the new ones on for $20.
