When does Acura recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 Acura SLXs?
When you first drove your 1999 Acura SLX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your SLX feels bouncy, pulls 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 1999 Acura SLX in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Acura SLX suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 getting your 1999 Acura SLX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Acura SLX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Acura SLX 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.
