We Repair and Maintain Your Suspension System
Potholes and bumpy roads create an unenjoyable driving experience, but without your car’s suspension system, it would be much worse. Despite any impact you may feel, your vehicle does a great job of absorbing the bulk of it. Over time, however, the components that make up your suspension system will wear out and become less effective. This can create unsafe driving conditions.

Why Your Suspension System is Important
Without a suspension system, your vehicle would be incredibly unsafe to drive. Besides absorbing impacts from potholes, bumps, and other road irregularities, the system keeps your tires on the road and stabilizes the steering system. It’s why your car doesn’t go airborne over a hill or flip on a sharp turn. It’s because of the suspension system that you can control your vehicle.
The system is made up of multiple parts, but the major players include coil springs, shocks and struts, and the anti-sway bar. When you hit any sort of obstacle, the impact is absorbed by the springs near your wheels, and then the energy is transferred to the struts or shock absorbers to dissipate. The anti-sway bar connects the left and right wheels and stabilizes the steering system to keep your car from rolling on turns. When any of these parts stop doing their job, it’s time to visit our auto repair shop and have them inspected and replaced — 221 N East Street.
Signs Your Car Needs Suspension Repairs
Because a vehicle with an ineffective suspension system is dangerous to drive, it’s important to know when you have a problem. One of the more obvious indicators is that you can feel every bump in the road, which is a sign your shocks or struts need to be replaced. Another notable sign that your suspension system needs attention is that your car sways any time you start, stop, or turn. You may also have uneven tire wear, difficulty steering, or leaky shock absorbers.
