When to Service Your Suspension System
You should have your suspension checked and serviced routinely as directed in the owner’s manual. There may be other times that you need to bring it to the pros to have it repaired. Some signs that your suspension may need attention include:
- It takes longer for the vehicle to stop completely after putting pressure on the brakes. If you’ve had your brakes checked, it could be the suspension.
- If you notice a squeak, clang, or other odd noise when you hit a pothole or bump in the road, it may mean your suspension is failing to do its job.
- When your vehicle bounces up and down or from side to side, you need to get your suspension checked out.
You’ll notice other signs as you drive if the suspension gets worse. Your vehicle may take a nosedive when you press down on the brakes or drag as you press on the accelerator. As you make a turn, you may notice the vehicle turn in too far. Don’t forget to check around the struts or shocks to see if oil or grease is present. This indicates a leak, which means the parts are losing their effectiveness.
You may want the service team to check your wheels, tires, and steering. These components work with your suspension and can cause some of the same issues. The service technicians at Bob Moore Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Oklahoma City will let you know where the problem lies, so you can get it repaired and feel safe on the road.
Dangers of a Bad Suspension
You can imagine how rough the ride will feel when you’re bouncing along on a bad suspension. However, your comfort isn’t the only issue with a suspension system that needs to be repaired. It can also cause safety issues.
Just imagine the danger you face if the car doesn’t want to stop when you press down on the brakes. You could end up in the middle of the road, an easy target to get hit. When your vehicle has so much sway and bounce, it’s also at a higher risk for a rollover, especially in high winds or when you’re traveling at a faster speed. Don’t ignore the above signs of a bad suspension.
