2008 Honda Civic Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2008 Honda Civic Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2008 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 jolts, sways 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 2008 Honda Civic, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Civic

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Honda Civic suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Civic’s shocks and struts 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. It’s a smart move to get your Civic’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 Honda Civic Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Civic's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • 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 connect with the road how 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’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
