2008 Acura RL Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2008 Acura RL Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Acura RL, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your RL feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Acura RL in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Acura RL suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. 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 from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Acura RL shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Acura RL suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 Acura RL Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 should my Acura RL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Acura intended.
  • When should I have my Acura RL power steering fluid checked? 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 top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
