Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Honda Civic

When To Get 1985 Honda Civic Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Honda Civic, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Civic bounces, pulls 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 1985 Honda Civic in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Civic’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Civic Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Honda Civic suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 Civic’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Honda Civic shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Civic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's 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 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 Civic? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Civic power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Civic is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
