Suspension Repair and Maintenance

Your suspension is what connects your wheels to the rest of your vehicle. A properly maintained suspension allows you to drive straight, turn and brake safely, and reduces the bumps, vibrations, and noise from the road.

 

These are warning signs that your suspension requires maintenance:

 

  • Pulling to the side while driving. This is a sign that your suspension is out of alignment or that your tires are not properly inflated.

  • Vibrations in the car and steering wheel while driving. This is usually caused by your tires not being evenly balanced.

  • Tires losing contact in wet or icy conditions. This can be an indication that the suspension has become loose and is not making solid contact with the road.

  • Bumpy or jarring ride. This is also a result of a worn out suspension.

  • Difficulty steering. This can be the result of low power steering fluid.

  • Tires balding on one side. This is the result of the tires not being at a 90 degree angle to the ground.

  • Squealing while turning. This is often a sign of a worn out power steering belt.
