Rough Ride, Bad Suspension
Your suspension system keeps your car up off the road. From there, it’s responsible for a smooth and comfortable ride around Albuquerque. It also keeps your wheels firmly planted over bumps and through curves on New Mexico highways.
Your suspension system has many critical parts that do a big job. They should be inspected for damage and excessive wear at least once a year. A good time would be when you get your semiannual alignment check.
Here are some warning signs of suspension problems: the car pulls to one side, wandering, erratic steering, uneven tire wear, leaning, shocks bottom out, poor ride or handling, oil leaking from shocks, and excessive bouncing.
Now suspension parts just wear out over time. Shocks and struts eventually lose their ability to control your ride. If you’re in an accident, your suspension can be damaged or knocked out of alignment. Even a minor accident, like hitting a curb, pothole or large rock, can mess things up. If you suspect suspension problems, ask a trusted service advisor at Christian’s Automotive for an inspection and let us set things right.
