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

When To Get 2005 Honda Pilot Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2005 Honda Pilot, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Pilot feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Honda Pilot in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Pilot steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Pilot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Honda Pilot’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pilot’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Pilot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pilot's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 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 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
