1987 Legend Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Acura Legend Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1987 Acura Legend, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Legend 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 1987 Acura Legend 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Legend 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 Legend Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1987 Acura Legend’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Acura Legend’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Acura Legend shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Acura Legend suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 Legend Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Legend? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Acura Legend power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Legend is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
