VEHICLE SUSPENSION

 

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension system consists of a series of springs and shock absorbers to provide an easy steering and a smooth ride. Over time this system becomes worn or broken steering and can lead to excessive tire wear, poor alignment, reduced stability, weak driver control, and unsafe driving conditions.

 

SUSPENSION SYSTEM RED FLAGS

 

Most manufacturers recommend checking the steering and suspension system every 50,000 miles. But if you notice any of the following warning signs, Honest1 ASE Certified has experienced mechanics and technicians who can quickly identify any issues you may have.

 

  • A bumpy, bouncy or shaky ride

  • Crooked steering wheel

  • Steering pulls to one side

  • Difficulty turning the steering wheel

  • Unusual noises after bumps or dips

  • Uneven tire wear

WHAT ARE SHOCKS & STRUTS?

 

If you aren’t exactly sure what shocks and struts do in your vehicle, don’t worry. You aren’t alone. Broadly speaking, shocks and struts are both important parts of your vehicle’s suspension system. The suspension system controls how your vehicle handles the road and ensures you and your passengers enjoy a comfortable ride.

 

“Shocks” are shock absorbers. They adjust to road conditions to reduce how much your car bounces, giving you a smooth, controlled ride. While struts are similar to shock absorbers internally and also control bounce and spring, they have an additional task.

 

Unlike shocks, struts provide structural support for the vehicle’s suspension system. They help keep the wheels aligned properly and support the weight placed on the suspension. Worn or damaged shocks and struts can heavily impact how your vehicle drives and handles, meaning it’s important to keep them in good condition.
