Not sure when or if your Honda Accord’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1998 Honda Accord Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Honda Accord, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Accord jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Honda Accord in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel 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 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1998 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. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Honda Accord shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Honda Accord suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1998 Accord Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Accord's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Accord power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
