Warning Signs for Suspension Service
Your suspension system is considered part of your drivetrain, and it is
integral to your car’s functionality. Your car generates tremendous
forces, vibrations, and inertia, and for the vehicle’s frame to
properly withstand them, it must be finely balanced. Your suspension system
provides this balance and ensures the smooth, efficient operation of your car.
Bad vehicle suspension can result in:
- Unnecessary tire wear
- Alignment problems and damage
- Vibrations and noise
A healthy suspension and driveshaft system isn’t just important to your safety and the integrity of your car, it’s also money-saving. These systems contribute to fuel efficiency, which means more miles to the gallon and fewer trips to the gas station.
How We Can Help
To keep your car’s suspension system in the best shape for you, your family, and others on the road, bring your car to your local Christian Brothers Automotive shop. Our certified auto technicians can inspect & repair your suspension system. We even cover our work with a 3-Year/36,000-Mile Warranty that expires at whatever limit occurs last.
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.
