2008 Acura RDX Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2008 Acura RDX Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2008 Acura RDX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RDX bounces, 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 2008 Acura RDX in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your RDX suspension system needs repair, 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 RDX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura RDX

Your 2008 Acura RDX’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Acura RDX’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura RDX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Acura RDX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 RDX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Acura's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Acura RDX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Acura RDX power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your RDX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
