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

Does Your 2004 Honda Civic Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2004 Honda Civic, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Civic feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Honda Civic in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Honda Civic suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Civic Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Honda Civic shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Honda Civic shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Honda Civic’s 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 2004 Honda Civic Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Civic's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Honda Civic get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When does Honda Civic power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Civic’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
