For a vehicle that stays strong and lasts for the long-haul, you need to safeguard the main operating components.
Your suspension system affects every part of the vehicle’s operation and requires regular maintenance to stay in great condition.
Unfortunately, this system is often overlooked. To really understand how to take care of the suspension system the right way, here are signs to look out for.
Symptoms of suspension problems
When your suspension is in jeopardy, there are a few symptoms to indicate a problem.
The signs of a compromised suspension include:
- Rattling or knocking noise
- Vehicle’s nose dives while stopping
- Poor vehicle handling
- Uneven or unusual tire wear
- Vehicle rides rough
- Drifting or pulling while driving
- Oil running down the outside of shocks
Too many North Carolina drivers believe their shocks will last indefinitely, or a car with larger tires and wheels doesn’t need a suspension check. In fact, the suspension components wear gradually.
This can cause you to miss any suspension problems until the damage has already been done. With regularly scheduled maintenance service, you can catch needed repairs and replacements before the real trouble begins.
