1986 Wagovan Honda Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1986 Honda Wagovan Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Honda Wagovan, 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 Wagovan bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Honda Wagovan in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Wagovan suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Honda Wagovan 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 Wagovan Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Honda Wagovan suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Honda Wagovan shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Wagovan shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Honda Wagovan suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1986 Honda Wagovan Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Wagovan's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Honda Wagovan? 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 Wagovan power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Honda's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
