Is It Time For 2005 Acura TSX Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Acura TSX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your TSX jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Acura TSX, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 TSX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura TSX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Acura TSX’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your TSX’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura TSX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Acura TSX’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 TSX Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 should my Acura TSX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Acura intended.
  • When should I have my Acura TSX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your TSX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
