Signs Your Car Needs Suspension Repair
The automobile is a complicated piece of machinery consisting of several components, and these components keep on increasing as the technology advances, making our rides better than before. Of all the components, the one supporting the suspension system is crucial for your vehicle’s smooth ride. Find below common signs your car needs suspension repair.
A suspension system is a term given to a system of springs, shock absorbers, and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels, and allows relative motion between the two. A suspension system separates the wheel axel assembly from the body.
What Is the Need for a Suspension System?
The suspension system is required in each automobile, to cushion and absorb road shocks – so as to provide comfort to passengers and prevent damage to the load and vehicle’s components.
How Does Car Suspension Work?
Springs and other components compress and expand, as the vehicle hits potholes or bumps on the road. This allows the vehicle to move up and down without moving the vehicle’s whole body. It essentially:
- Supports the weight of the vehicle
- Provides a smooth ride
- Keeps tires in firm contact with the road surface
- Enables front wheels to turn left or right for steering
- Isolates body from road shocks and vibrations
- Prevents excessive tilting of the vehicle when it is heavily loaded or vehicle picks up speed
Every vehicle needs maintenance from time to time. And without a proper Suspension System, it won’t run for long. It is advisable not only by Tserv but every car service center to keep your vehicle under regular maintenance to avoid any major damage, but still, if your vehicle shows these warning signs, rush to your automobile hospital, the service station, and get it rectified.
1. Sudden Jerks in Ride
When your smooth sailing car suddenly gives jerks in-between, or if you encounter a bump on the road and your car bumps more than it should or keeps on shaking for a while after a breaker – then it’s time to give the suspension system in your car immediate attention.
2. The Car Is Tilting
If your car suddenly tilts to one side, and the tire pressure seems fine, then it’s the problem of suspension. Chances are springs or other components of that side are in need of repair. Tilt might also be noticed when you stop your car. Notice that when you stop your car, the front of the car also tilts down when you stop, it is a sure sign of suspension failing.
3. Take the Bounce Test
Once in a while take a bounce test with your automobile. Just put it in neutral and let it slide, if you notice that it does not slide smoothly and bounces, then there is surely a problem with the suspension.
4. Car Goes Left and Right on Its Own
This is experienced in old cars when while driving the driver does not feel in total control of the vehicle. The wheels seem to go a bit left and right on their own, and do not seem to fall in a straight line. This is because the suspension system is unable to have full control of the vehicle. Chances are more than one component has failed in such a condition, and needs to be taken care of immediately, else it could lead to a major accident.
The suspension system is required to maximize the friction between your car’s tires and the road, this is also important to maintain the stability of the vehicle while driving. Suspension is the comfort key to your ride, and its being top-notch means that the life of your vehicle would be more, and you would use much less fuel. In a nutshell, your ride just depends on the suspension system and it is important that you take good care of it.
