The roads can be unpredictable, that’s why it’s important to make sure to keep your car up with maintenance!

Suspension problems in your vehicle are very common, taking care of them quickly can prevent any future major damage in your vehicle and in your wallet! Driving a car with a damaged suspension will make your car feel unbalanced and unstable, which can cause you to lose control of your car.

Here are some common problems that indicate that your suspension system needs fixing:

  • Faulty wheel alignment – Having your wheels not aligned can cause damage to your car and suspension making it harder to control your vehicle. 
  • Bad shocks – shocks can break down and leak over time, which can decrease their efficiency. You’ll notice that your vehicle’s ride is much more bumpy than usual. 
  • Failing ball joints – ball joints are crucial for absorbing shocks while driving. If you hear a squeaking or creaking when turning, this is a sign of bad ball joints. 

The suspension system provides smooth driving and keeping traction on the wheels. Driving a broken or worn out suspension can be very dangerous
