Lehigh Fleet Services, we offer suspension services that keeps your vehicle safe on the road. Shocks and struts are an essential part of the suspension system that provides a smooth ride for you and your passengers.
Symptoms of Bad Shocks and Struts
Shocks and struts don’t go bad suddenly but rather they have a slow decline. If you're experiencing any of the symptoms below, bring your car to our shop and one of our auto mechanics will inspect your suspension system.
- A bouncy ride while driving
- Your tires may wear unevenly
- Car rocks when turning a corner
- When braking, the car shifts forward
Testing Your Suspension
Do you suspect that your car needs new shocks or struts, but you're not sure? Our auto repair experts recommend testing them by pushing your car up and down to see if there's a lot of bouncing before it stops. When in good condition they will stop in the center right away, while bad ones will bounce up and down. If you're unsure, bring your car to our shop and one of our technicians will inspect them for you.
Additionally, ball joints, control arms, tie rods, and sway bar links are other components that support the suspension system and should be inspected to ensure they are in good working order. A well-maintained suspension system isn't just essential for a smooth ride, but it's also required to pass a state inspection. If you're experiencing suspension issues, walk in or schedule an appointment with us and we'll ensure your ride is smooth and safe.
