Suspension Service & Repair for 2000 Acura RL

2000 Acura RL Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2000 Acura RL suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2000 Acura RL Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2000 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, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2000 Acura RL, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your RL 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 RL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2000 Acura RL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2000 Acura RL shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Acura RL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2000 Acura RL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2000 RL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Acura RL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • When does Acura RL power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. 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.
