Suspension Repair in Escondido, CA
Do You Know What to Look Out for When It Comes to Suspension Problems? — West Automotive Group
The suspension system is a crucial part of a vehicle. Not only does it support the weight of the car, but it’s also responsible for providing a smooth, balanced ride. When an issue arises and you need suspension repair, you can count on the team at West Escondido Automotive & Transmission to inspect the system and accurately determine the problem.
Signs of a Bad Suspension
Considering the purpose of the car suspension, signs that something is wrong are often instantly recognizable. The most common indicator is a rough ride where you can feel every bump in the road, which usually points to needing new shocks and/or struts. Failure to replace the shock absorbers when needed can lead to a bouncier ride, becoming more uncontrollable overall. Difficulty when steering is another symptom of a suspension problem, which could mean low power steering fluid or worn belts or control arm bushings. A car that drifts or pulls to one side or that sits low or “nose dives” are additional signs your suspension needs professional service. It’s important to stay vigilant when it comes to changes in control, agility, and steering. If any of these seem off, make a trip to our repair shop for suspension repair.
What Are Common Suspension Repairs?
The suspension is made up of many different parts, including wheels, springs, shock absorbers, struts, bushings, bearings, and joints. While the need for repair isn’t a regular occurrence, certain components are more prone to wear or damage due to their placement and function in the system. A tie rod, spring, or control arm can break, resulting in hard steering and the inability to properly control your vehicle. As springs wear, they can sag and break. A damaged or broken spring is a common suspension repair problem that causes your vehicle to sit low to the ground (usually in just one corner). You will notice the need for new struts if your vehicle dips down in the front or leans back when you accelerate; a knocking sound when traveling over a bump in the road is another indicator. Ball joints and controls arms both wear over time as well, ultimately requiring replacement.
