Suspension Service & Repair for 2009 Honda Element

When To Get 2009 Honda Element Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 Honda Element, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Element bounces, drifts 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 2009 Honda Element in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Element 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 Element suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Element Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Honda Element 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Element’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 Element shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Honda Element’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2009 Honda Element Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Element? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Element power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Element’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
