Although a suspension system is a crucially important component of a vehicle, not all drivers really could say much about it. It's all in human's nature not to interfere with the things that function well and to take the functioning of the different parts for granted. Still, there are situations when you have to carry out necessary trouble shooting in your vehicle. It's much easier to do when you have an idea on how the systems of your Mountaineer are arranged and work. So, the suspension is mainly the springs mounted in the front and the rear of the vehicle, which suspend the sprung weight of the car and absorb shocks caused by rough roads. The suspension systems can have different layouts. For example, coil springs for the front and rear or an independent front/rear suspension are used on most four-wheel drive utility vehicles, sports utility vehicles, and trucks.

Over the years, the famous Mercury Mountaineer mid-size luxury SUV offered softer suspension tuning compared to its twin, the Ford Explorer. A wider position and an independent rear suspension of the later models substantially improved Mountaineer's handling and ride, while a new 4.6-liter V8 provided sufficient power with smoother operation. That's why, the Mountaineer has always been praised for outstanding handling and stability. And it will last years more if you take good care of your suspension system right now. CARiD's huge warehouses are at your disposal, containing the suspension system components from A to Z, like for instance, leaf springs, shocks, struts, and suspension strut/coil spring assemblies. Staying where you are, you are able to purchase necessary suspension components by the most prominent brands at the fairest prices. CARiD.com online store made it possible for you. Welcome and have a joyful shopping experience!
