Suspension Service & Repair for 1999 Acura RL

1999 Acura RL Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Acura recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 Acura RLs?

Does Your 1999 Acura RL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1999 Acura RL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your RL bounces, pulls 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 1999 Acura RL, bring it 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your RL 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 parts of your Acura RL 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 RL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Acura RL’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RL’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura RL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Acura RL’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.

Questions About 1999 Acura RL Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RL'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura RL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Acura RL power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your RL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Acura service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
