    Side view mirrors

    Hi Demetria. As 17MKZ3.0TT stated, not all model year/trim levels have auto-fold mirrors. What model year and trim level is your MKZ? The instructions on how to use the auto-fold mirrors are in your Owners Manual. if you do not have the hard copy, you can download the PDF version here: https://www.fleet.ford.com/parts-service/resources/owner-manuals/ Good luck.

    Rear suspension height

    Yes, As I pointed out, there are no air springs or shocks. While technically there are ride height sensors, the car itself has no self-leveling capability, which was Zondedo's original question. They're used in conjunction with the CCD. Different story, however, for the Aviator with Lincoln Air Glide suspension. I just hope it's more reliable than it was on the Mark 7 and TC.

    Rear suspension height

    Found an old picture. I used an Energy Suspension isolator on top the factory isolator, as seen here.

    Revel 14-speaker system subwoofer upgrade

    Finally, a little bit of Dynamat and then covered the rear deck with mass loaded vinyl. Since the sub fires directly into the cabin now, it doesn't distort the 6x9s so I wanted to use them. I carefully separated the 6x9s from the upper mid/tweeter assemblies in order to turn the woofers around. This oriented the woofer wire connectors to face outwards and not interfere with the sub box. While it still takes up a bit of trunk space, I like it much better and it sounds better too. It doesn't rattle the trunk and doesn't distort the 6x9's. I'd still like to do is obtain another under deck cover and modify it to fit around the box. I also don't notice any active noise cancellation from it. I have a full Forscan license, so I might experiment with the setting, but otherwise I'm finished.

    Rear suspension height

    My 2019 appears to look a bit lower in the back as well. You could add an additional poly urethane spring isolator to gain 3/8" or so. I did that on my old 2009 Fusion when I added lowering springs to get the car level looking.

    Rear suspension height

    The MKZ doesn't have auto leveling. It has continuously controlled damping (CCD) only. There are no air springs or shocks, as on the old Mark 7 & 8 series and Town Cars. Some new Lincoln SUVs do have it.

    Michelin Cross Climate 2 , A/S tire

    Just took another look at the DSW 06+ , it seems so much better than the regular DSW 06 you wonder why would they make this version , the + is just a couple dollars more . It is real close between the Miches pilot a/s and the DSW + but the DSW+ has a better rating in snow . Last year I installed Continental cross contact 25 on my daughter's Nissan Murano , they have been outstanding in all weather situations . Jim

    Michelin Cross Climate 2 , A/S tire

    gfong , you got it right , the DSW 06+ looks like it just edges out the Miches in performance especially in snow and price , from the reviews I looked at you can not go wrong with these , good luck .

    gfong , My size 245 45 18 . Tire rack is a great help , just type in your car and conditions you will be driving in and they will show best on down . You do not have to buy tires from them but will get a good idea which is best for your car and the conditions you will be mostly concerned about . Yea winter is not that far off .

    Michelin Cross Climate 2 , A/S tire

    8/27/21 , Crossclimate 2 update . Now have about 300 miles on them , just rode thru the last hurricane in the NE down pour , the tires are excellent driving on wet roads , so good you forget to be cautious in the weather , they are quite and track great on dry , as good or better than my last favorite tires Perilli P7 + . If this tire does what I have read about it's performance in snow it will truly be the first real all season tire . I am driving the hybrid front wheel drive , so this car needs help in bad weather conditions , these tires on a all wheel drive car would be fantastic .

    Car cover

    I have a Covercraft 'Noah' cover for my car, only using it in the winter when the snow rolls in. It works great, the cover comes off and the car still looks freshly washed. It looks like they replaced that cover model with another name at some point, I don't see it available anymore on their site. I had the same cover on my 07 Fusion, and left it covered for 51 days straight during a rough winter, and when i removed the cover, I only had to go over the car with my California Car Duster.

    Devin's 2017 MKZ

    I had 3 LSes: 2000 V6 Sport, 2003 V8 Sport and a 2006 V8 Sport. Loved 'em all. You're right about the handling. I would occasionally get under the car just to admire the suspension components.

    Devin's 2017 MKZ

    Nice ride Devin! Hope you and the family/baby are well. I'm sure you've looked into turning up the wick already. Do those wake up the same as the tuned 3.0T does? No, I still haven't installed the H&R's but I will get to it soon! Drolds, what year(s) LS did you have? I terribly miss my LS as well, my neighbor recently got rid of it so I don't even see it drive by anymore. It was a silver birch '02 with staggered Jag Vulcans and a 125 progressive shot of nitrous. Handling was that car's mojo, especially lowered, and it lived to 300K miles even with trips to NE dragway. I had many parts in my basement to convert to what is now Devin's limited slip diff. The MKZ is the other way around with lots of power but so so handling; hopefully the springs remedy some of that. and his intercooler now lives on in my MKZ
