Is the steering and suspension system in your Honda Civic due for service yet?

Is It Time For 1998 Honda Civic Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Honda Civic, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Civic jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Honda Civic, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Honda Civic’s suspension. 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 1998 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda Civic shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Honda Civic suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Civic Steering & Suspension Questions

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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
