1989 Acura Legend Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Acura Legend Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Acura Legend, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Legend jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Acura Legend, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Acura Legend suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura Legend

Your 1989 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Legend’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Acura Legend shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Acura Legend’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.

1989 Legend Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Legend's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why should my Acura Legend get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • 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 follow Acura service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
