Does your vehicle suspension bounce when driving down the road? Dip and bottom out when going over bumps? Do you fight your vehicle to drive in a straight line? If so, our technicians can offer steering and suspension services to help straighten and smooth out your vehicle’s ride.
A vehicle suspension and steering system serves two purposes — managing the handling of your vehicle on the road and improving comfort by minimizing bumps and vibrations in the passenger cabin. Over time, key components such as ball joints, tie-rod ends and bushings can wear out even in normal use. Hitting or running over obstacles like potholes or curbs may damage some of the same components. Worn or broken parts can affect the ride, handling and safety of your vehicle.
Shocks and struts are integral components of your vehicle’s suspension system. Over time, shocks and struts can become worn, affecting ride comfort and handling.
We offer shock and strut replacement services to restore your vehicle suspension system to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. New shocks and struts can provide enhanced handling, greater safety, advanced stability and control, a shorter braking distance, and a superior ride for you and your passengers.
After a thorough inspection and analysis of your vehicle suspension system, we will give recommendations for the suspension and steering systems, including shocks and struts.
- Excessive bouncing after hitting a road bump
- Vehicle sways or leans on turns
- Vehicle “nose dives” when you apply the brakes
- Harsh or shaky ride
- Fluid leaking out of the shock or strut body
