So, let’s look at how auto suspension systems function, and get to know the various parts that need servicing or replacing to maintain the silky-smooth ride and integrity of your car’s suspension performance.
How Car Suspension Systems Function
The primary function of your car’s suspension system is to structurally support your vehicle while maintaining a comfortable ride for you and your passengers. This is done by suspension system components helping your tires maintain strong and even contact with the street by compensating for bumps, dips, sudden turns, and worst of all, potholes. These components 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.
Our Suspension Repair & Maintenance Services
Eventually and unavoidably, the parts of your suspension system will lose integrity and break, simply over time and 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.
