1986 Accord Honda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1986 Honda Accord Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1986 Honda Accord, 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 Accord jolts, 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 1986 Honda Accord in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your Honda Accord’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.

Honda Accord Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Honda Accord 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 limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Honda Accord shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda Accord shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Accord’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1986 Honda Accord Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Honda Accord get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Accord 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 Accord is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
