Common Suspension System Issues

  2. Pulling to One Side: If your vehicle pulls to one side when driving, it could be due to issues with your suspension or alignment.
  3. Feeling Every Bump: A rough or bumpy ride might indicate that your shocks or struts need to be replaced.
  4. Diving, Rolling, or Squatting: If your vehicle dips forward when braking (diving), rolls to one side when turning (rolling), or squats backward when accelerating (squatting), it could be a sign of suspension problems.
  5. Oily or Damaged Shocks: Visibly oily or damaged shocks are an obvious sign that they need to be replaced.

Warning Signs for Suspension Service

Your suspension system is a critical component of your drivetrain and is integral to your car's functionality. Your vehicle generates significant forces, vibrations, and inertia, and to properly withstand these elements, the vehicle's frame must be finely balanced. Your suspension system provides this balance, ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of your car.

Signs of a failing suspension system include:

  • Unnecessary tire wear
  • Alignment problems and damage
  • Vibrations and noise

Maintaining a healthy suspension and driveshaft system is crucial not only for your safety and the integrity of your car but also for saving money. These systems contribute to fuel efficiency, resulting in more miles per gallon and fewer trips to the gas station.

If you're experiencing any of these issues, don't hesitate to contact Christian Brothers Automotive Bradenton. 

We're here to help keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely!

  • Q. "How do I know if my suspension needs service?"
    Signs that your car needs suspension service include braking problems, abnormal noises, and excessive bouncing. If you are experiencing any of these problems, we recommend getting your vehicle looked at by our professional technicians.
  • Q. "What is the difference between shocks and struts?"
    While one of them will be found in every one of your vehicle’s tires, a vehicle will either have a shock or a strut at each wheel, never both. A shock cannot be used to replace a strut and a strut cannot be used to replace a shock. Which one does your vehicle have? Depends on the make and model. Learn more here.
  • Q. "How often should I have my suspension system looked at?"
    We recommend that you have it looked at once a year or every 12,000 miles along with your regular scheduled maintenance. If you want to learn more about signs that your suspension is worn click here.
