A BUMPY RIDE, POOR BRAKING CONTROL AND UNEVEN TIRE WEAR ARE ALL SIGNS THAT YOU COULD HAVE A SUSPENSION PROBLEM.

If you notice any of these signs, you should talk to us.

Signs your suspension is in need of service:

    • Bumpy rides.
    • Poor braking control.
    • Uneven tire wear.

If you notice any of these signs, you should talk to us.

One of our shock and coil spring experts will fully examine your vehicle’s suspension before correcting the problem.

Shock absorbers are used at each wheel to hold your car on the road and to control the bouncing motion caused by the suspension system as it responds to road conditions. The function of your vehicle’s shock absorbers and coils is to give you a smoother ride by reducing road shocks and bumps while your drive.

Front suspension systems are usually comprised of coil springs, shock absorbers, torsion bars or struts. Rear suspensions use either struts, or shock absorbers and coil or leaf spring systems.

Likely causes are the strut is loose in the tower, the nut attaching the strut to the bearing plate is loose, the rubber bushing and/or the bearing in the strut mount is defective, or the shock absorber within the strut has failed. If none of these is the problem, it could be a problem in one of the other suspension components. In any case, this could become a safety issue: bring the vehicle in to us so that we can properly diagnose the problem for you.

It could be low power steering fluid or a suspension component that’s lost lubrication, or maybe tire noise. Bring your car in and let us have a look and we can help you pinpoint what the problem is.

The anti-sway bar bushing or links, control arm bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, springs, struts, or a number of chassis problems. Come in as soon as you can, and we’ll have a look and let you know what’s going on under there.

It doesn’t always mean you need a new suspension, but if your car bounces excessively even on small bumps, you may need new shocks and struts. Bring it in, we’ll have a look, and let you know for sure.
