1983 Accord Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1983 Honda Accord Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Honda Accord, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Accord jolts, pulls 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 1983 Honda Accord in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Accord suspension system needs repair, 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 your Accord steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 Honda Accord

Your 1983 Honda Accord’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1983 Honda Accord shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Accord shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Honda Accord’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.

1983 Accord Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Honda Accord 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 Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Accord power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Accord is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
