When does Acura recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 Acura SLXs?

Is It Time For 1999 Acura SLX Suspension Service?

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.

Acura SLX Replacement Shocks & Struts

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.

1999 SLX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my SLX's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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.
  • Does my Acura SLX power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your SLX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
