When To Get 1999 Honda Prelude Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1999 Honda Prelude, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Prelude jolts, drifts 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 1999 Honda Prelude, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Prelude suspension system needs repair, 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Prelude’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Honda Prelude shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Honda Prelude’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1999 Honda Prelude Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Prelude's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 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 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Prelude is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
