Is the steering and suspension system in your Honda Pilot due for service yet?

Is It Time For 2004 Honda Pilot Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2004 Honda Pilot, 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 Pilot jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2004 Honda Pilot 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Pilot suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Honda Pilot 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 Pilot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Honda Pilot’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2004 Pilot Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pilot's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Pilot? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When does Honda Pilot power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Pilot is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
