2002 Honda Civic Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2002 Honda Civic

Not sure when or if your Honda Civic’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2002 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2002 Honda Civic, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Civic jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Honda Civic, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Civic

Your 2002 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. 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 2002 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Honda Civic shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Honda Civic suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2002 Civic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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.
