2012 Honda CR-Z Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2012 Honda CR-Z Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2012 Honda CR-Z, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CR-Z jolts, pulls 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 2012 Honda CR-Z in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your CR-Z suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Honda CR-Z suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Honda CR-Z Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Honda CR-Z suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Honda CR-Z shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda CR-Z shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Honda CR-Z suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 CR-Z Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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-Z? 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 connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When does Honda CR-Z 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-Z’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
