2018 Ridgeline Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2018 Honda Ridgeline Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2018 Honda Ridgeline, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Ridgeline 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 2018 Honda Ridgeline, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Ridgeline suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Honda Ridgeline 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Honda Ridgeline

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Honda Ridgeline’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Ridgeline’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Ridgeline shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Honda Ridgeline’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.

2018 Ridgeline Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Honda Ridgeline power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Ridgeline’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
