Not sure when or if your Honda Odyssey’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1998 Honda Odyssey Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Honda Odyssey, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Odyssey feels bouncy, leans 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 1998 Honda Odyssey in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Odyssey suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Honda Odyssey’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Odyssey Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Honda Odyssey suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Honda Odyssey shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Honda Odyssey shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Odyssey’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Odyssey Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Odyssey? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Odyssey 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 Odyssey is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
