Is My Suspension Getting Weak?
Steering and Suspension components are responsible for maintaining your rides handling performance and comfort ability. The steering and suspension system also helps keep control of the vehicle at all times.
The suspension system converts the impact created by bumps in the road into vertical energy that travels up into the vehicle frame. Suspension system components, like coil springs and shock absorbers, help to reduce the traumatic forces on your system.
While the individual parts comprising each suspension system may differ, all suspension system components will weaken over time. Similarly, erratic driving and poor road conditions will wear out your suspension sooner. At R&M Auto Center Inc. in Mt. Holly NC, our staff is trained to inspect the steering and suspension components to identify trouble areas. We have the equipment and expertise to adjust and replace your components to help keep your ride comfortable and performing well in all driving conditions.
Are My Steering Parts Going Bad?
Shaky, unsteady, off-center, and stiff steering are all cause for getting a steering system evaluated. Excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving and braking are cause for a suspension system inspection.
Uneven tire wear can identify a suspension problem, though this may also point to alignment issues. Potholes can also cause damage to steering and suspension components. Worn suspension components will reduce the ability of the vehicle driver to maintain proper control.
Because suspension system components combine into one working unit, suspension issues that go untreated have the potential to increase the wear on other suspension components, which may result in more extensive repairs down the road.
