Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Honda Civic

Does Your 1984 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1984 Honda Civic, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Civic bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1984 Honda Civic 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper 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 Civic suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Civic 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Civic

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 Honda Civic suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Civic’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Civic shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1984 Honda Civic Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Civic's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Civic? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Honda Civic power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Civic is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
