the vin # of my car was not even included in the recall! i have left it up to the attorney bc the matter is out of my hands. my mom assisted in the purchase of the 'safe, reliable car'...then that happened. Needless to say she is quite pissed & has chosen to pursue it further. i saved all the parts and my attorney has then and has had them examined as well.
*sigh* will b glad when this is all over tho!!!

I can't believe you're still pursuing this 3.5 years later. If the recall wasn't applicable to your vehicle then you have no case for negligence. It was an accident - that's why you have insurance.

so ford likes to rape people by making you buy the whole control arm on lincoln ls for bushing/ball joints. but guess what, all of you who wanna change out the bushings on the lower control arm can use the bushing for the same year model on the jag s-type. after researching and getting know where, i figured it out. take a look at the control arm for the s-type, same part right,lol. same replacement parts. so instead of getting it in the butt from the dealership for 700 in parts get what you need for 45 bucks a side for bushings and 60 a side for ball joints

The same thing nearly happened to me. I purchased a 2000 Lincoln LS last fall and have dumped a large amount of money into repairs since. The car is currently in the shop because of the same ball joint failure. I nearly lost control of the car going 65 mph. The mechanic just called me and wanted to know who had attempted to remove the ball joint because the nut was completely loose to the point of nearly falling off. I checked the recall info and either my car was not recalled or it had already been torqued. In either case, the result could have been deadly. I hope things work out well for you.

On the sway bar bushing part number from Energy Suspension it there a G or R after the 9.5171? Is the sway bar a 30mm in diameter? Does anybody know?
#127 of 139 lower control arm bushing

Does the front most bushing on the lower control arm contain any oil or lubricant? As I am seeing some leakage from it and can not find any source of fluid coming from anywhere else.

Hi my name is Skylar Shaw, and i to have a 2000 lincoln ls with the same problem. I took it to a machanic to see why the car was squeaking while driving. After he inspected it he deemed the car dangerous and unsafe to drive. So i did some research and like you i saw it was a recall on the front suspension on the 2000 lincoln ls. I followed up with lincoln the next day asking if they would honer the recall. I was told 3 different things, 1st they said the original owner brought it in back in 2001 and the problem was remedied, another rep said it wasnt a recall on this car and another rep said the car was old and the case has closed on those models. If you have any info that can help me, my email is shawskylar83yahoo.com

I have a 2000 lincoln LS VS with 74,000 miles. The best place I have found to buy parts for my car is Rock Auto. I have replaced myself the sway bar links (R/L), driver lower ball joint and upper driver L control arm. I did the work myself at an auto hobby shop. The left/driver control arm is far harder than the passenger side buy looking at the bots.
