Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Acura TSX

Does Your 2011 Acura TSX Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Acura TSX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your TSX feels bouncy, sways 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 2011 Acura TSX in for suspension and steering service. 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, 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 steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Acura TSX 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura TSX

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Acura TSX suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Acura TSX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Acura TSX’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.

2011 TSX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Acura TSX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Acura TSX power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your TSX is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Acura's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
