1989 Honda Accord Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Honda Accord Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Honda Accord, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Accord bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Honda Accord in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your Accord steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Honda Accord’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Accord’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Accord shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Honda Accord suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1989 Accord Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Accord's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Accord? 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 connect with the road how 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
