1987 Honda Accord Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1987 Honda Accord Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1987 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 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Honda Accord, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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.

Honda Accord Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Honda Accord’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 Accord’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Accord shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Accord’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Accord Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Accord's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Accord? 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.
  • Does my Honda Accord 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 Accord is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
