2006 Acura RL Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2006 Acura RL Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2006 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 jolts, pulls 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 2006 Acura RL in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your Acura RL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Acura RL suspension system. 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. 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, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Acura RL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Acura RL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2006 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 help you notice when you need 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.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how 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 follow Acura service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
