Shocks, Struts and Suspension

[vc_row bg_type=”bg_color”][vc_column width=”2/6″][vc_custom_heading text=”Shocks, Struts & Suspension Service” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:36px|text_align:left|color:%23072a60″ google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:800%20bold%20regular%3A800%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Some car problems are very obvious and easy to notice such as failing brakes and an overheating engine with steam seeping out from under the hood. However, others are more low-key and take a keen awareness to catch them. The suspension system in your vehicle is a perfect example of this because many people may not know what to be on the lookout for.

Symptoms such as excessive bouncing over bumps, nosedives when braking, uneven tire wear, rough driving, leaning heavily to one side, and oil leaking from the shocks could all point to a worn suspension system and call for repair work. If you begin to experience any of these warning signs with your suspension, we are ready to help you at Garber Chevrolet Linwood today![/vc_column_text][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_btn title=”View All Our Services” style=”custom” custom_background=”#0185cf” custom_text=”#ffffff” size=”lg” align=”left” i_align=”right” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-arrow-circle-right” link=”url:%2Fall-auto-repair-services%2F|||” add_icon=”true”][vc_btn title=”View Current Specials & Deals” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_background=”#000000″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” align=”left” link=”url:%2Fservice%2Fservice-specials%2F|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/6″][vc_separator border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]

Suspension FAQ’s—

[/vc_column_text][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”How can I tell if my suspension system isn’t working properly?” tab_id=”how-can-i-tell”][vc_column_text]The following are signs of a deteriorating suspension system:

  • If the drive is excessively bouncy or the vehicle is swaying, even at slow speeds
  • If the car does not sit level when parked
  • If the vehicle is not handling well
  • If the steering wheel feels loose
  • If the ride is uncomfortable

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”I suspect my suspension is damaged, but I can live with the uncomfortable ride- should I still be concerned?” tab_id=”suspension-may-be-damaged”][vc_column_text]Absolutely! At highway speeds, a faulty suspension system has the potential to prevent the springs in your vehicle from absorbing energy, which could result in the vehicle lifting off the ground. Additionally, a vehicle with a failing suspension system becomes less responsive. In the event you make a sudden change of direction, the vehicle could sway the opposite direction and result in a vehicle flip.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How can I be sure my vehicle’s suspension is safe?” tab_id=”suspension-safety”][vc_column_text]Your vehicle’s suspension is nothing to mess with as it is one of the major features designed to keep you safe. That being said, don’t take chances!

Everything you need to know about vehicle suspension—

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]There are a few main components within the vehicle’s suspension system that contribute to a smooth and controlled driving experience. These include:

Frame – This supports the vehicle’s body, which is itself supported by a suspension system.

Suspension – This part of the vehicle absorbs any shock and supports the vehicle’s weight.

Steering System & Tires – These both provide control for the driver and for making contact with the road.

Spring Systems – These help absorb the general motion of the wheels and the vehicle, contributing to a more balanced ride.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_type=”bg_color” ult_hide_row=”ult_hide_row_value” ult_hide_row_mobile=”mobile” ult_hide_row_mobile_large=”xl_mobile” css=”.vc_custom_1471531929672{padding-right: 75px !important;padding-left: 75px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1472582146331{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 64px !important;background-image: url(https://di-uploads-pod5.s3.amazonaws.com/rogermcintoshchevy/uploads/2016/08/coupons-specials-parallax.jpg?id=1353) !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1471531782831{padding-top: 32px !important;padding-bottom: 32px !important;}”][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-tags” color=”white” size=”xl” align=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1471274959203{padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”Exclusive Coupons & Specials” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:36px|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” google_fonts=”font_family:Raleway%3A100%2C200%2C300%2Cregular%2C500%2C600%2C700%2C800%2C900|font_style:800%20bold%20regular%3A800%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]
