Does Your Suspension Need Service?
At our facility, we don't feel like it's enough to simply maintain and repair your suspension system. For you to get the best out of your vehicle, it's also important that you know any common warning signs. No, you wouldn't be able to do much, but knowing the signs could help you prevent a problem from worsening. If you're not sure what to look for, here are two common suspension problems that should ring the alarm bells:
- Rough Rides: An easy way to tell if your car is experiencing suspension issues is if your drives suddenly feel uncomfortable. Although it's normal for your car to vibrate when going over rough terrain, you shouldn't feel every bump on the road. If so, that indicates something is wrong with the suspension (likely the shock absorbers), and you'll need to have it serviced.
- Wheel Misalignment: A common suspension problem that many vehicle owners deal with is wheel misalignment. This occurs when drivers hit a curb or debris and knock the camber, caster, or toe (the three angles that make up proper alignment) out of alignment. Issues can range from slight vibrations to significant pulling, so your best bet is to get the car realigned as soon as possible.
