What’s That Sound?

Does your car make a clunking, popping or rattling sound — or even a donkey-like “eee-aww” sound — when you hit a bump or pothole? And does it sound as if it’s coming from the front of the vehicle?  If so, you’ll want to have the front suspension inspected right away.

suspensionPagePic2Clunks and rattles can be attributed to comparatively benign issues, such as worn bushings, but could also indicate serious and potentially dangerous problems with components called ball joints, tie rod ends or control arms — items that are connected to the steering system. These sounds could also indicate problems with the struts. Those problems are potentially dangerous because they could lead to a loss of vehicle control.

If your car is making those sounds, call Douglas Automotive Repair today to have it inspected!
