Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Acura TL

When To Get 2004 Acura TL Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2004 Acura TL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your TL bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2004 Acura TL, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 TL’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura TL

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Acura TL’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Acura TL’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Acura TL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your TL’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.

Questions About 2004 Acura TL Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my TL's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura TL? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Acura TL power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your TL is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Acura service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
