2011 RL Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2011 Acura RL Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2011 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. Perhaps your RL feels bouncy, 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 2011 Acura RL in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your RL suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Acura RL’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, 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 2011 Acura RL suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2011 Acura RL Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Acura's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Acura RL get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
