When To Get 2005 Honda Civic Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2005 Honda Civic, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Civic jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Honda Civic in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Honda Civic’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Honda Civic suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Honda Civic’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Civic shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Honda Civic suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2005 Civic Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
