Your vehicle’s suspension system is designed to keep your road travel comfortable. It’s made up of three main components: springs, shocks, and struts. The springs help to keep your vehicle at the right height and absorb the effects of the bumps in the road. Shocks and struts can be used together (front end & rear end) or used separately in vehicles. These components in your suspension system are meant to keep your road travel smooth and stable. When the suspension really gets worn, you will notice the front end dipping whenever you come to a stop. Bring your vehicle to us if you notice that it’s starting to drift or pull to one side when turning. This is a problem that should definitely be check out as soon as possible because it could be a suspension repair need, or it could be a wheel alignment, brake, or tire issue.
One quick way to find out what condition your suspension is in is the “Bounce Test.” While your car is parked, use all of your weight to push down on the front end. If it continues to bounce up and down after you let go, then there’s probably a suspension issue that we need to address. When the suspension is in good shape, it will steady the vehicle’s body. This stabilization is what the springs, shocks, and struts were designed to do. Another sign of a suspension repair need is greasy shocks or struts. Our techs will let you know if your vehicle is leaking fluids. Give us a call today at 703-968-6648 to schedule your next suspension repair appointment.
