Suspension Service & Repair for 2019 Acura RDX

Does Your 2019 Acura RDX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2019 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, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2019 Acura RDX in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Acura RDX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RDX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2019 Acura RDX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RDX’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Acura RDX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2019 Acura RDX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2019 Acura RDX Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura RDX? 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.
  • 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.
