Suspension Problems?

Suspension systems should continue to operate effectively for many years and tens of thousands of miles, holding your tires’ foot print on the road. Eventually components do wear out, but how long that takes depends a lot on how you drive.

Suspension_0909_SusanJoel_SN_sAs you can imagine, if most of your driving is on smooth highways, your Car or SUV shock absorbers will last a lot longer than if you do most of your driving on bumpy roads or hauling heavy loads. In addition to just wearing out, upgraded shock suspension components can be damaged in an accident or by a hard impact – like a pothole, hitting a curb or a rock in the road.

Because the life span of shocks can vary so widely, your vehicle manufacturer recommends periodic inspections. During a car inspection our technicians will check for worn, broken or missing suspension parts. If the inspection reveals any problems, take care of this important safety and handling work. When you replace your shocks, it’s usually a good idea to replace all four at the same time. That’ll give you even handling at all four corners of the vehicle.

If you have special road handling needs like improved cornering or towing or hauling requirements we can recommend an upgraded shock or strut to get you what you want.
