1985 Honda Prelude Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1985 Honda Prelude Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Honda Prelude, 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. Maybe your Prelude bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Honda Prelude, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Prelude 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 Prelude Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Honda Prelude suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Honda Prelude shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Prelude shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Honda Prelude suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Prelude 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 Prelude? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 Prelude 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 Prelude is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
