At AutoStream Car Care, we value a proactive approach to auto care and maintenance. If you believe there’s something wrong with your car, we want you to take it into our shop before the problem worsens. But not many vehicle owners know when their car is dealing with issues, and we want to help with that. Here are two common suspension system issues you should know, why they happen, and what you should do:
When the suspension is working properly, you shouldn’t feel much of the road’s various imperfections and obstacles, if at all. If you feel that your drives have gotten a lot more aggressive, rough, and generally uncomfortable, it’s a common sign that the suspension’s shock absorbers are worn or failing. True to its name, the shock absorbers help dampen much of the impact your car experiences. When these parts fail, it can quickly make your drives uncomfortable, so we suggest service at your earliest convenience.
Ideally, all sides and corners of your vehicle should be sitting at an even, proper height. This allows your car to clear elevated obstacles and prevent it from scraping the ground. If you see that a corner, the front, back, or side of your vehicle is sitting low, your vehicle likely has a damaged spring. This can compromise your car’s ability to properly take on corners and you may hear some sounds when going over bumps. Driving with this issue is both bad for your vehicle and dangerous for you, so we recommend service as soon as possible.
