Suspension Repair in Colchester, CT
Properly aligned steering and suspension systems on your vehicle are responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. When a car’s suspension does not work properly it can be dangerous. A vehicles suspension absorbs bumps smoothly; the shocks and struts enable proper steering, and prevent the car from pulling in directions you do not want to go.
No matter what type of suspension system your vehicle has, the auto repair experts at Reliable Auto Center have the tools and experience to diagnose and repair your shock, struts, and suspension problems.
To help identify if your steering and suspension systems are working effectively, Reliable Auto Center will examine all of your steering and suspension parts, and will also check:
- Steering wheel alignment
- Power steering fluid
- Tightness of nuts and bolts
- Unbalanced tires
- Torn or worn steering belts
Most vehicles manufacturers recommend that your shocks and struts need maintenance about once every 50,000 miles. Indicators that you need your steering and suspension system inspected include:
- Steering problems
- Vehicle pulling
- Wheels shake
- Vehicle bounces after going over a bump
Your car’s suspension and steering system allows your wheels to move independently while keeping it stable and suspended. Any uncontrolled motions and play in these systems results in handling deterioration and accelerated tire wear. Worn or loose components affect the suspensions systems ability to control motion and alignment angles resulting in vehicle handling and stability deterioration, as well as accelerated tire wear.
The Suspension system includes:
- Ball joints
- Shock absorbers
- Control arms
