DON'T IGNORE THE WARNING SIGNS

Call Us at (928) 282-4988 to Schedule an Appointment.

  • Reduced Braking Ability

    When your shocks or struts become worn down, your vehicle "jounces" more over bumps, which means it bounces up and down. This makes braking more difficult and could significantly increase your stopping distance. So take note: If your vehicle is taking longer than usual to stop, or if it is nose-diving when you do so (another sign of decreased traction), BRING IT IN FOR AN INSPECTION A suspension check is part of our Multi-Point Inspection. During the inspection our technicians will ensure that all possible issues are assessed, and you'll have less to worry about.

  • Less Control on Corners

    Watch out for an exaggerated "body roll" when you turn corners—this is when you feel yourself and your vehicle tilting a bit more than normal, which can be a sign of damaged shocks or struts. If that's happening to you, bring your vehicle in for a suspension check right away, because excessive body roll can affect your ability to safely steer around obstructions in the road.

  • Rougher Ride

    Getting jostled on your journey is not only uncomfortable, it can affect your ability to safely control your vehicle. Try a quick bounce test at home by pushing down firmly on the front and rear of your vehicle. If the car moves up and down more than once or twice, have your shocks and struts checked.

  • Tire Wear

    When struts or shocks are worn out, your tires wear out faster. A damaged strut or shock can also contribute to quicker wear on the other steering components of the vehicle, like rods and wheel bearings. If you notice a rumbling or increased vibrations at higher speeds, have one of our technicians look for "cupping" on your tires, which is a type of scalloped wear pattern associated with struts and shocks. Cupping happens when your car jounces up and down, leaving indented scuff marks on the tires, and is a big red flag that your suspension needs repairing.

  • More Hydroplaning & Skidding

    Worn shocks and struts can affect the way your wheels engage with the road, especially when roads are slick. If your vehicle is sliding or hydroplaning frequently, get your suspension checked right away.
