Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Honda Prelude

Does Your 1989 Honda Prelude Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Honda Prelude, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Prelude 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 1989 Honda Prelude in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Prelude steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Your 1989 Honda Prelude’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1989 Honda Prelude shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Prelude shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Prelude’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.

1989 Prelude Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Honda Prelude get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Honda Prelude 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 Prelude is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
