1989 Honda CRX Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Honda CRX Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Honda CRX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CRX jolts, pulls 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 1989 Honda CRX 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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Honda CRX 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda CRX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Honda CRX’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Honda CRX’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda CRX shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CRX’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 CRX 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda CRX? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda CRX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your CRX’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
