2011 RDX Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2011 Acura RDX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Acura RDX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your RDX feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Acura RDX in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura RDX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Acura RDX’s suspension. 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 2011 Acura RDX shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura RDX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Acura RDX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 RDX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura RDX? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Acura intended.
  • When does Acura RDX power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your RDX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
