2008 CR-V Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2008 Honda CR-V Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 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, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, 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 2008 Honda CR-V’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 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 CR-V’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn 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.

2008 CR-V Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's 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 CR-V 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 come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda CR-V power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your CR-V’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
