When driving, there’s nothing more irritating than a used or faulty auto suspension. Every bump in the road seems intensified and your comfort takes a hit. When an auto suspension does not function properly, it can also damage your tires and other parts of your vehicle.
What’s An Auto Suspension?
One of the auto suspension’s main roles is to link the wheels to the frame. Over the years, the auto suspension evolved to improve passenger comfort and vehicle stability. Most auto suspensions are now equipped with shock absorbers that diminish the vehicles sensitivity to uneven terrain, as well as to bumps and potholes.
Signs of Wear
In order to determine if the auto suspension is defective, it is important to closely monitor your vehicle’s performance. The auto suspension shows signs of wear that are similar to those of an improper wheel alignment. For example, your vehicle might pull to one side, the tires might show excessive or unequal wear, the steering system might be less effective, etc. However, the most obvious sign is excessive bouncing when your vehicle encounters holes or bumps on the road.
Inspection and Repair
Before carrying out any repairs on the auto suspension, Mécanobec checks the springs, the shock absorbers’ temperature, the interaction between the suspension and other vehicle systems, and much more. This allows us to identify the real problem and make appropriate repairs.
