Is It Time For 2006 Honda CR-V Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2006 Honda CR-V, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CR-V bounces, leans 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 2006 Honda CR-V in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your CR-V suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your CR-V steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda CR-V Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Honda CR-V’s suspension. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Honda CR-V shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Honda CR-V shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CR-V’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.

2006 CR-V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CR-V'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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Honda CR-V get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When does Honda CR-V power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your CR-V is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
