When you first drove your 2008 Honda Element, 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 Element bounces, sways 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 2008 Honda Element in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Element 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Honda Element suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Honda Element shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Honda Element shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Honda Element’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
