2008 Honda Accord Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2008 Honda Accord Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Honda Accord, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Accord feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Honda Accord in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, 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 parts of your Honda Accord suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 2008 Honda Accord’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Honda Accord’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Accord shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Honda Accord suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2008 Accord Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 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 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
