When you first drove your 2021 Honda CR-V, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your CR-V feels bouncy, drifts 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 2021 Honda CR-V in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.
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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Honda CR-V suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2021 Honda CR-V’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. 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 2021 Honda CR-V suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
