Is It Time For 2003 Honda CR-V Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2003 Honda CR-V, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CR-V bounces, 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 2003 Honda CR-V 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, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your CR-V 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.

Honda CR-V Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Honda CR-V 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your CR-V’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Honda CR-V shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Honda CR-V suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
