Is It Time For 1998 Acura CL Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Acura CL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your CL feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Acura CL in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Acura CL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura CL Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1998 Acura CL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Acura CL’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Acura CL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Acura CL’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1998 Acura CL Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Acura's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura CL? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • When should I have my Acura CL power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your CL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
