Suspension Service & Repair for 2018 Honda CR-V

Does Your 2018 Honda CR-V Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2018 Honda CR-V, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your CR-V feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2018 Honda CR-V in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your CR-V suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2018 Honda CR-V’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, 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 2018 Honda CR-V suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2018 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda CR-V? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 CR-V 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 CR-V’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
