2009 TSX Acura Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2009 Acura TSX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2009 Acura TSX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your TSX bounces, leans 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 2009 Acura TSX 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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Acura TSX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura TSX

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Acura TSX suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Acura TSX’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Acura TSX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your TSX’s 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.

2009 TSX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my TSX's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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. 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 TSX 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 TSX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
