Signs You Need Suspension Repair
No matter what kind of car you drive, there are a few key signs that indicate suspension problems. It’s important for drivers to recognize these signs and get their cars into our shop for professional service. Ignoring suspension problems won’t solve anything. You’ll only put your comfort and safety at risk! If you notice any of the following symptoms while driving, contact A&J Automotive for help.
You Feel Every Bump in the Road
It’s not just an inconvenience if you feel every small bump in the road. It’s a sign that your vehicle’s suspension system has a problem. Rough riding and “bouncing” after every bump is your signal to seek professional attention.
Drifting & Pulling
Does your vehicle seem to drift when you turn or fight you in corners? This is a sign of failed shocks, the component that keeps the vehicle body stable while turning. Your vehicle’s risk of rolling over is heightened when shocks don’t perform optimally so contact a professional right away for service.
Dips When Stopping
When you hit the brakes, does the hood of the car take a nosedive? If so, you’re looking at worn out shocks. They control how stable the vehicle’s body is when the brakes are applied and if they wear out, it could negatively affect how fast your car comes to a stop! Don’t wait for the problem to worsen — get help immediately!
Uneven Tire Wear
For another clue on the status of your vehicle’s suspension system, take a close look at the tires. If the tread is unevenly worn — one side is lower or if one area is balding — that could indicate the suspension isn’t keeping the car in its ideal stance. One tire may be carrying a heavier load and wearing out more quickly. It’s best to get professional help with this as soon as possible.
