2012 Acura TL Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2012 Acura TL Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 Acura TL, 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 TL bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Acura TL in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your TL suspension system needs repair, 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 2012 Acura TL’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2012 Acura TL’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Acura TL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your TL’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
