Signs You Need Suspension Repair

suspension repairYour car’s suspension system is an integral part of your vehicle. Not only does it connect your car to the road itself, but it contributes to your steering and handling. Easily forgotten due to its location, your suspension is under strain at all times. While most parts will last for many years, eventually they will need repair or replacement.

Depending on your specific vehicle, your suspension will consist of some varying parts. Overall though, your suspension system includes the parts that support the frame: springs, dampers, and anti-sway bars. This may include shocks and struts, control arms, tie rod ends, sway bar mounting bushings, and more. It is rare for these parts to suddenly fail, but it is important to watch for signs of wear. This might include:

  • Car Drifts or Pulls During Turns
  • Car Rides Roughly
  • Oily Looking Shocks
  • Rough Ride
  • Uneven Tire Tread

If you notice any of these problems, it’s best to bring your car in to your local mechanic as soon as possible. Driving with a damaged suspension system is dangerous, increasing your chances of a rollover and your stopping distance. Plus, it’s not very comfortable to ride around in a bouncy, rocking vehicle. Suspension repairs are often affordable and do not take too much time. However, ignoring a problem can lead to more extensive damage.
