Auto Suspension Repair Services

The Importance of Auto Suspension Repair Care

Your car’s suspension system is made up of the tires, springs, shock absorbers, struts, arms, bars, linkages, bushings and joints. These components, which are located between the vehicle’s frame and the road, are designed to help evenly distribute your vehicle’s weight. A properly working suspension system will absorb bumps and dampen shock, making your driving experience smooth and pleasant. It also plays an important role in keeping your tires in contact with the ground to provide traction and stability.

The steering system is connected to the suspension with a series of pivot joints. The steering column includes the steering wheel and is responsible for maneuvering your vehicle. Your car’s handling is completely dependent on a properly functioning steering system.

Your suspension and steering systems don’t just create a pleasant driving experience; they also play an important role in safety. A reduction in maneuverability or stability can result in loss of control and even car crashes.

Take your car in for a suspension inspection if you experience any of these issues:

  • Diving forward of the car’s nose
  • Bottoming out while driving
  • Bouncing harshly over bumps
  • Losing traction while turning
  • Steering difficulties
  • Pulling to one side while driving
  • Steering wheel jerks, vibrations or wobbles
  • Knocking, clunking or squeaking noises when turning

When you take your vehicle in for any of these problems, the technician will inspect the components of your steering and suspension systems for leaks, cracks or damage. If something needs repair or replacement, they will walk you through next steps to ensure your car is safe and comfortable.

Trust Boyce Auto Repair

Routine maintenance is the best way to keep your vehicle’s steering, suspension and other systems working properly for years to come. It also gives a technician the opportunity to inspect your vehicle regularly so they can identify any potential problems while they are still small and easily addressed. You’ll save time and money by minimizing the risk of an unexpected system failure that could leave you and your vehicle stranded.

That’s why it’s so important to have an auto repair shop you can trust. A positive relationship with your car’s mechanic will ensure that you feel comfortable taking your vehicle for both routine maintenance and for repair when problems arise. While some drivers mistakenly believe that ignoring the check-engine light or skipping tire rotations is an easy way to save money, they are actually setting themselves up for major expenses in the future — up to and including a new car.
