If you suspect any trouble with your car’s suspension system, it’s important that you act quickly. But many owners aren’t sure what to do or what to check for, and that’s where our team can help. Here’s how you can tell if something is wrong with your car’s suspension and what you need to do:
- Rough rides: one of the easiest ways to tell if your car’s suspension system is in trouble is by paying attention to how it responds on the road. Do your drives feel smooth? Or does it seem like you’re feeling every bump and imperfection on the road? If it’s the latter, that immediately tells you something is wrong and you should bring your car in for service at your earliest convenience.
- Bounce test: another great way to see if the suspension is in trouble is by using the bounce test. Before your drive, press all of your weight down onto your vehicle’s hood and release it. Then do the same on your vehicle’s trunk. Now, how often does it bounce? If it’s more than two or three times, that lets you know the suspension is wearing out and will need service soon.
