When To Get 2003 Acura CL Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2003 Acura CL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your CL feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Acura CL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your CL suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CL steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Acura CL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Acura CL’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your CL’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura CL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Acura CL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2003 CL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CL's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura CL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • When should I have my Acura CL power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Acura service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
