2011 Honda Pilot Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2011 Honda Pilot Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2011 Honda Pilot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Pilot bounces, 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 2011 Honda Pilot in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 your Honda Pilot’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Pilot

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Honda Pilot suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2011 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts replaced 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 can all point to issues with your Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Honda Pilot’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Pilot? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • Does my Honda Pilot power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Pilot’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
