When does Acura recommend steering and suspension service for 2002 Acura RSXs?

Does Your 2002 Acura RSX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2002 Acura RSX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your RSX feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Acura RSX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your RSX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RSX Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2002 Acura RSX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2002 Acura RSX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura RSX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Acura RSX suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 RSX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Acura's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 should my Acura RSX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Acura RSX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
