Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Honda Prelude

When To Get 1987 Honda Prelude Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Honda Prelude, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Prelude feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Honda Prelude, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Honda Prelude’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Prelude Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Honda Prelude’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Honda Prelude shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Prelude’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Prelude Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Prelude's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Prelude? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Honda Prelude power steering fluid checked? 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 ensure proper suspension operation.
