2016 RLX Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2016 Acura RLX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2016 Acura RLX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RLX bounces, leans 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 2016 Acura RLX in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system 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 the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Acura RLX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RLX Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2016 Acura RLX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2016 Acura RLX shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Acura RLX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Acura RLX 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.

2016 RLX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my RLX's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura RLX? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Acura RLX 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 RLX is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
