2002 Acura RL Suspension Service & Repair

2002 Acura RL Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2002 Acura RL suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2002 Acura RL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 Acura RL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RL bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2002 Acura RL in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Acura RL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura RL

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Acura RL suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Acura RL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Acura RL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Acura RL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 RL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RL's steering and 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura RL? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Acura intended.
  • When does Acura RL 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 RL’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
