Time to get to know the various parts that may need service or replacement to maintain the ease and integrity of your vehicle’s suspension performance
The How & Why of Auto Suspension Systems
The main point of your vehicle’s suspension system is to support your car while maintaining a smooth ride for you. This is accomplished by suspension system parts assisting your tires to maintain even contact with the asphalt by adjusting for bumps, dips, sudden turns, and worst of all, potholes. These parts include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, all working to absorb bounce and unexpected motion from the road’s surface.
Suspension Repair & Maintenance Services
Unavoidably, the parts of your suspension system will break from wear and tear. Signs you need a suspension service or repair include leaking shocks, leaking struts, dips when braking, and scraping the bottom of your car on bumps. You will probably experience bouncing, swaying, squeaking, shaking, and stiffness while driving as well; especially when you come across rough or uneven pavement. Unusual tire wear is another possible sign of your suspension problem. All these indicate the need for a suspension system inspection and diagnostic to see the exact reason of the issue and more importantly to fix it properly.
