2003 Honda Civic Suspension Service & Repair

2003 Honda Civic Maintenance Schedule

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

Does Your 2003 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2003 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. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2003 Honda Civic, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Honda Civic’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2003 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Civic shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 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.

Questions About 2003 Honda Civic Steering & Suspension

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Civic? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Civic power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Civic is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
