Suspension Maintenance in Clinton Township

Your car suspension smooths out every drive around Sterling Heights and makes sure that you maintain control. As such, suspension maintenance is a critical component of your overall maintenance schedule. You can always schedule service with Moran Chevrolet, Inc. to ensure your car suspension remains in proper working order on the Sterling Heights streets. But for now, learn more about what is a car suspension, what suspension maintenance entails, and more!

 

 

What Is a Car Suspension?

Unsure what is a car suspension? Simply put, it maximizes the friction between the tires of your vehicle and the road surface to provide solid handling (the car’s ability to accelerate, brake, and corner) and a comfortable ride (the car’s ability to remain steady on bumpy roads). A car’s suspension consists of the following components:

  •  Frame, which supports the car’s engine and body
  • Suspension system, which supports weight, absorbs and dampens shock, and helps to maintain tire contact with the road
  • Steering system, which gives power to the driver to guide and direct the vehicle
  • Tires and wheels, which propel the vehicle forward via grip and/or friction with the road

The car suspension system, in particular, is made up of springs, dampers, and anti-sway bars, all of which must be in good working condition to provide a safe and comfortable ride.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs Suspension Maintenance

So, when does your car suspension require maintenance or repairs? Look out for the following signs that it’s time for suspension maintenance in the Macomb Township area.

  • Ride Quality: Your ride quality lowers as shocks or struts wear down. When this happens, you will experience a more bumpy ride on the Saint Clair Shores streets, indicating that your vehicle needs suspension maintenance. 
  • Drifting: If you notice that your car drifts or pulls during turns, then your suspension system may be wearing down.
  • Uneven Tire Wear: Uneven tire wear may be a sign that you need suspension repair or replacement, because your suspension is no longer keeping your car even.
  • Fluid Leaks/Oily Shocks: The shocks within your car suspension have hydraulic fluid to reduce vibrations, so if you noticed leaks on your driveway or oil on the shocks themselves, it is time for service.
