Suspension Repair in Arlington, Virginia
Your Local Suspension Service Experts
It’s hard keeping track of the hundreds of parts that make up your car. One that often goes unnoticed but that deserves recognition is the suspension. The suspension system is located within your vehicle’s chassis, where other key players like the frame, steering system, tires, and wheels are located. The suspension is responsible for maximizing the friction between the road and the tires, ensuring optimal steering stability and handling, and ensuring the comfort of the passengers. Due to its location, the suspension also helps support your vehicle. Many components comprise the suspension—it’s not just one part. The big three are the shocks, struts, and springs, but pieces like tie rods, linkages, ball joints, bearings, and bushings are no less important to the overall function of the suspension. Here at Auto Stop in Arlington, Virginia, we are experienced in caring for all vehicular suspension types and their parts. For suspension repair and replacement you can rely on, choose us!
Signs of a Faulty Suspension
So, how do you know if your suspension is in good shape? Your vehicle will often let you know when something is wrong that warrants professional attention. One of the most obvious is when you can feel every bump in the road, which then causes your vehicle to bounce in response. If you experience a drifting or pulling sensation when turning, a likely reason is worn shocks that cannot provide stability against a turn’s force. Additional symptoms that warrant suspension repair include your car “nose diving” when stopping, which is felt via a forward and downward lurch when you apply the brakes, uneven tire tread wear, a clunking or knocking noise when going over a bump, and damaged or oily shocks. Suspension problems range in complexity, which is why we always encourage you to visit our suspension repair experts at your earliest convenience if you start to notice a change in how your vehicle drives. Please remember that many of these symptoms can yield to issues with wheel alignment, your steering system, and even your tires. A professional diagnosis is your best bet in troubleshooting and fixing the problem.
