Your suspension system affects every part of the car’s operation and requires regular maintenance to stay in peak condition.
Unfortunately, this system is often the most overlooked. To fully understand proper care of the suspension, here are signs of trouble to look out for.
Symptoms of suspension problems
When your suspension is struggling, 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 Texas drivers believe their shocks last indefinitely, or a car running larger tires and wheels doesn’t need a suspension upgrade. In fact, the suspension components wear gradually.
Unfortunately, this can cause you to miss any suspension damage until it’s too late. With regularly scheduled maintenance service, you can catch needed repairs and replacements before the real trouble begins.
