Understanding Your Vehicle's Suspension System

The suspension system of your vehicle is a complex network of components designed to absorb shocks and maintain tire contact with the road. It includes parts such as springs, shock absorbers, struts, control arms, and more. Properly functioning suspension not only ensures a smoother ride but also enhances vehicle control and reduces wear on other components.

Signs Your Car Needs Suspension Work

It's essential to recognize the symptoms of a failing suspension system. Here's how to tell if your car needs suspension work:

  • Unusual noises when driving over bumps
  • Vehicle pulling to one side
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Excessive bouncing after hitting a bump
  • Difficulty steering

If you notice any of these signs, it's time to bring your vehicle to Christian Brothers Automotive Omaha for a comprehensive evaluation.

Warning Signs for Brake Service

Typically brake problems stem from worn brake pads or rotors. When you stop, your brake pads create friction to help slow your vehicle, while your rotors disperse heat to prevent your brakes from overheating. Both pieces are essential when it comes to functioning brakes. Fortunately, if either of these pieces are damaged, we can replace them.
You may also be experiencing brake problems because of low brake fluid. This fluid is responsible for turning the force you add to your braking system by pushing the pedal into amplified pressure that will actually slow or stop your vehicle. It also protects the internal metal components of your brakes from corrosion.

How We Can Help

As your partners in automotive care, we service your brakes as thoroughly as possible, conducting a full inspection before determining and fixing the problem.

  • 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.
