When To Get 2009 Acura RDX Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 Acura RDX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough.

The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your RDX 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 RDX 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 RDX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Acura RDX’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Acura RDX shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura RDX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Acura RDX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
