Suspension Service & Repair for 2012 Honda Ridgeline

When To Get 2012 Honda Ridgeline Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2012 Honda Ridgeline, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Ridgeline bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Honda Ridgeline 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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Ridgeline

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Honda Ridgeline’s suspension. 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 2012 Honda Ridgeline shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Honda Ridgeline shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Honda Ridgeline suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Ridgeline Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Honda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 should my Honda Ridgeline 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Ridgeline power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Ridgeline’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
