Suspension Service & Repair for 2005 Acura RL

Is It Time For 2005 Acura RL Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Acura RL, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RL jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Acura RL in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RL Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Acura RL’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Acura RL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Acura RL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 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.

2005 RL Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Acura intended.
  • Does my Acura RL power steering fluid need to be checked? 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’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
