Suspension and Steering Parts for Honda Civic

The steering and suspension systems of a Honda Civic allow a driver to maneuver the vehicle in a variety of traffic conditions. Each system is composed of a variety of steering and suspension parts that work together to help give the driver control over the trajectory of the vehicle.

When do ball joints and bushings require replacement?

A ball joint holds the front suspension system of a Honda Civic together. Bushings also play a role in the suspension and steering systems and are designed to control the amount of vibration felt inside the vehicle.

  • Unusual noises: Under normal circumstances, these parts produce little to no noise during operation, but if a driver notices a loud popping sound when steering, it could be a sign that the car requires service.
  • Excessive vibration: When a car encounters rough road conditions, the driver should feel minimal vibrations, but the presence of unusual levels of vibration may indicate an issue with suspension parts.
  • Loss of steering control: If a driver notices that a car requires extra work when steering, it may be due to worn ball joints and bushing parts.
How do you replace worn struts?

A strut is designed to provide integrity for the frame of a Honda Civic. If you notice unusual tire wear patterns or have difficulty steering your vehicle, it may be time to replace the strut.

  • Remove old part: The first step is to remove the wheel and disconnect the brake lines, which will provide unobstructed access to the struts and allow for easy removal.
  • Disconnect struts: Once the old parts are loose, remove them from the frame of the vehicle.
  • Inspect replacement strut: Before inserting the new device, be sure to inspect the coilover for signs of damage as this is the primary component that eliminates the presence of vibration.
  • Installation: To complete the process, slide the new part into place, making sure to line up the coilover, and then secure it in place using the mounting bolts.
How do you select the correct replacement control arm?

A control arm is yet another component of suspension parts that should be regularly inspected for damage. These vital parts connect the suspension system to the body of the vehicle and will create unpredictable driving conditions if not replaced. Match the model number of the part to the year and VIN of your Honda Civic to ensure a secure fit.

How do you replace the shocks on a Honda Civic?

Shocks are yet another component designed to ease the driving process and create a comfortable ride. Their only purpose is to keep the vehicle from bouncing.

  • Shock removal: Locate the shock tower and loosen the bolt that is holding the part in place until it is easy to remove.
  • New part installation: Next, insert the new part into the wheel well and connect it to the shock tower, making sure to secure it with a bolt.
  • Testing and inspection: Once connected, turn the wheels of the vehicle and make sure the shock remains in position before steering the car at high speeds.
