Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1991 Honda Civic

When does Honda recommend steering and suspension service for 1991 Honda Civics?

Does Your 1991 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1991 Honda Civic, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Civic feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Honda Civic, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Civic 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 Civic 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 Civic Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1991 Honda Civic’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. 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. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Civic shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 Honda Civic suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 Civic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Civic? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Civic power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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.
