Suspension Service & Repair for 2009 Honda Civic

When To Get 2009 Honda Civic Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2009 Honda Civic, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Civic jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Honda Civic in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Honda Civic’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 2009 Honda Civic’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Civic’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Honda Civic Steering & Suspension

  • 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. 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Civic’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
