When To Get 1996 Honda Prelude Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 Honda Prelude, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Prelude jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Honda Prelude in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Prelude suspension system needs repair, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Prelude

Your 1996 Honda Prelude’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Honda Prelude shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Honda Prelude shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Honda Prelude’s 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.

Questions About 1996 Honda Prelude Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Honda Prelude get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Prelude power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
