Signs You Need a Suspension System Examination

Here are some signs that your suspension system needs to be examined:

  • Steering is erratic
  • Your vehicle is pulling to the side 
  • Drifting vehicle
  • Trouble steering
  • Care doesn’t ride smooth
  • Bouncy rides 
  • Straying or shaking tires

What Does Your Car’s Suspension System Do?

The suspension system in a vehicle is a structure designed to offer maximum friction between the road surface and your vehicle’s tires. It ensures that your steering does not behave erratically and absorbs all the energy from the impact your car receives as its wheels hit the cracks, bumps, and holes on the road. It enables you to experience a smooth and safe ride. 

Here are the different components of a suspension system and their distinct roles:

  • Frame: It’s the main suspension part that supports the weight of your vehicle’s body and engine.
  • Suspension System: It’s the system that absorbs road shocks, supports your vehicle’s weight and keeps the tires on the ground.
  • Shocks: They reduce roll and sway, bouncing, drake dive, and acceleration squat. Shocks are oil pumps that control suspension movement. 
  • Steering System: It allows you to turn your vehicle.
  • Wheels & Tires: The wheels turn around to move your car, and the tires are the rubber rings that cover the wheel’s rim. They help the wheels keep a solid grip on the road, keeping you from experiencing bouncy rides.
  • Axles: These are rods that support your vehicle’s weight and turn its wheels. 
  • Struts: They offer structural support and dampen road impact. 
  • Control Arms: They ensure the wheels move in line with your vehicle’s body and prevent drifting.

All Suspension System Parts Require Timely Repairs & Maintenance

If your suspension is in need of repair, it will get reflected in your vehicle’s drive. If it pulls to one side or wanders, or your steering is erratic, you might need a suspension repair. All parts of your suspension system can require repairs. For instance, if your shocks are leaking oil, you will need to have them replaced. Similarly, if your tires are worn, they will need to be replaced. 

Your vehicle’s struts might also wear out, and the wheel bearings will need to be repacked every few years. You will need regular preventative maintenance and timely repairs to ensure your suspension system continues to run optimally, keeping you safe. If you delay repairing even one part of your suspension system, you can get into road accidents.
