How To Tell If The Car Suspension Needs Repair

suspensionA new car gives out the smoothest road ride. However, as years pass by, the car faces wear and tear most especially if the car is used frequently. There are car parts that won’t work the way they used to, particularly the suspension. When this happens, it is necessary to have the car suspension parts checked to prevent future problems and further hassles.

How will you know if your car suspension parts are not in top shape? Your car will give you the signs, and some of the prominent ones would be the following:

• Rough ride: When you feel that your ride suddenly becomes “too bumpy,” there must be a problem in your car suspension. Once your suspension parts become torn, the car often bounces which makes a very rough and uncomfortable ride.

• Nose-dive: When you apply the brakes, your car reels forward with its nose first, commonly known as nose-dive. A poor car suspension affects how your car stops, and in fact, increases the stop time up to about 20%.

• Unstable: You cannot make a turn in a swift manner because the car’s unstable condition is not letting you do it. The unstable condition of the car due to bad suspension can also affect the tires. Because the suspension is not holding the car properly, it puts hard pressures to the tires which results to worn out treads and bald parts.

• Oil drips: If the shocks look too oily, that can be due to a leaking fluid caused by a damaged suspension.
