Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Acura RL

2004 Acura RL Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2004 Acura RL suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2004 Acura RL Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2004 Acura RL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your RL jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Acura RL in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 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.

Acura RL Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2004 Acura RL’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RL’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Acura RL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Acura RL suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 RL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RL's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
