Suspension Repair: More than Just a Bump in the Road

The Functions and Importance of Your Vehicle's Suspension

If the comfort of your ride has decreased or if you feel like it's more difficult to control your vehicle, the problem may be more than just a bump in the road. While we all know that some road surfaces are in better condition than others, a consistently bad or declining experience is often indicative of suspension system trouble. That's important because your automobile's suspension not only smooths out your ride but it also impacts your steering capabilities and vehicle responsiveness. It affects how well your tires can make contact with the road, so poor suspension function equates to questionable traction. If you bring your European vehicle to Import Auto Repairs with locations in Alpharetta and Milton, Georgia, you won't have to worry about suspension issues. Our team of experienced technicians will keep your car hugging the road and your passengers comfortable.

What Are Some Signs of Suspension Trouble?

Of course, we'll need to check your automobile to ensure a proper diagnosis. There are few signs. However, that frequently points in the direction of suspension trouble. For example, one of the most obvious is a very bumpy ride, particularly if your auto didn't always treat you that way. It's possible that you have worn shocks/struts. Also, if your car continues to bounce up and down for what seems like too long after you've crossed an unlevel spot in the road, you might have bad springs or shocks. Springs could also be to blame if your auto sits sideways (lower on one side or end than the other). Your vehicle may feel as if it's drifting or pulling to the side as you drive, and you might have trouble steering, especially when you corner. That's because the suspension is also related to the wheel alignment, a term used to express the relationships of the major suspension angles to one another and to the vehicle itself.
