2009 CR-V Honda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2009 Honda CR-V Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2009 Honda CR-V, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your CR-V feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2009 Honda CR-V in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda CR-V’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda CR-V

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 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 limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Honda CR-V shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda CR-V shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Honda CR-V suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2009 Honda CR-V Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CR-V's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
