Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1997 Honda Prelude

Not sure when or if your Honda Prelude’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1997 Honda Prelude Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Honda Prelude, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Prelude bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Honda Prelude in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your Honda Prelude suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Prelude Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1997 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Prelude’s shocks and struts 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 could all be indicators of worn Honda Prelude shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Honda Prelude’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1997 Prelude Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • Does my Honda Prelude power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Prelude is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
