Space25 is a full-service auto repair shop serving Shelton, CT. One of our specialties is suspension repair and maintenance. If your vehicle’s suspension system is compromised in any way, you’re not only experiencing a less comfortable ride, you have less control of your vehicle, which can put your safety at risk. So, enough suspense, let’s look at how auto suspension systems work, and get to know the numerous components that may need to be serviced or replaced to maintain the smoothness and integrity of your vehicle’s suspension performance.
How Auto Suspension Systems Work
The main function of your vehicle’s suspension system is to provide structural support for your car while maintaining comfortable riding conditions for you and your passengers. To do this, suspension system components help your tires maintain firm and even contact with the road by compensating for bumps, potholes, dips, and sudden turns. These components include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, which all work to absorb bounce and unexpected motion from the surface of the road.
Our Suspension Repair & Maintenance Services
Eventually and unavoidably, the components of your suspension system can weaken and malfunction, simply due to time, wear, and tear. Signs you may need a suspension-related service or repair include leaking shocks or struts, nose-dives when braking, and bottoming out during bumps. You may also experience bouncing, swaying, squeaking, shaking, and stiffness while driving, especially when you encounter rough or uneven pavement. Irregular tire wear is another potential sign of a suspension problem. All these symptoms indicate the need for a suspension system inspection and diagnostic to determine the exact cause of the issue and to fix it correctly.
