Steering & Suspension

Shocks and/or struts control spring oscillations. A spring that is not properly controlled can cause a rough and unstable ride.

Symptoms one might experience if their automobile needs shocks/ struts

  • The vehicle may bounce excessively after going over a bump
  • The tires may be worn showing signs of cupping, or scalloping which occurs when tires don’t track straight on the pavement.
  • The suspension system may be worn

Common services one might need if their vehicle is in need of this service

  • The shocks/struts may require replacement
  • Struts may need the upper bearing and/or mount replaced
  • Tire rotation or tire replacement
  • The springs and ride height should be checked

Preventative maintenance tasks one should consider

  • The shocks and struts should be inspected at regular intervals
  • The springs, suspension, and ride heights should be inspected at the same time
