Is the steering and suspension system in your Acura SLX due for service yet?

Does Your 1998 Acura SLX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 Acura SLX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your SLX bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Acura SLX in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your SLX suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Acura SLX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura SLX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Acura SLX’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Acura SLX shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura SLX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your SLX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 SLX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Acura's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura SLX? 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.
  • When should I have my Acura SLX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your SLX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
