1990 Honda Accord Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Honda Accord due for service yet?

Does Your 1990 Honda Accord Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 Honda Accord, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Accord bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Honda Accord in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Accord Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Honda Accord’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Honda Accord’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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.
