1988 Integra Acura Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1988 Acura Integra Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Acura Integra, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Integra feels bouncy, sways 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 1988 Acura Integra in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Integra suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Acura Integra’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Acura Integra Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Acura Integra’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Integra’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura Integra shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Integra’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact.
