Is It Time for Suspension Repair & Service?

Everyone knows it’s essential to have your brakes repaired when they’re not working right, but many drivers overlook the importance of suspension services. Shocks and struts keep your wheels on the road and help you control your vehicle as you brake, turn, accelerate, or drive over uneven road surfaces. Your suspension system is key for a safe, comfortable ride. 

Fortunately, it’s not hard to tell when you’re having suspension problems! Here are some common signs it’s time to schedule suspension repair & service at our Kent WA shop:

  • A shaky or bumpy ride
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side
  • Difficulty steering or vibration in the steering wheel
  • Rattling noises when you drive over small bumps in the road
  • One corner of your car sits lower than the others 
  • The front of your car nosedives when you brake
  • Uneven tire wear 
  • Your tires sound like a basketball being dribbled down the road 
  • Hydraulic fluid leaks
  • Oil on your shock absorbers

Another way to tell if your suspension system needs servicing is to do the bounce test. Go to each corner of your car and push it down. When you let go of the corner, your vehicle should bounce back and settle into place. If it keeps bouncing, your shocks or struts likely need to be replaced.

Super nice people, Conner was at the front desk as well as another person but I didn’t catch her name. Both were helpful. The shop couldn’t repair my issue due to the manufacturer requiring specific tools. They did a safety inspection and didn’t charge me for it or for the diagnostics since they couldn’t perform the fix!
