The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Worn suspension components may reduce the stability of the vehicle and reduce driver control, as well as accelerate wear on other suspension system components. Below are some of the most common suspension issues, and how you can know when it’s probabaly time for suspension repair at Kirkland Nissan Service near Seattle.
Your car “bounces.” - This is an easy potential issue to look for from the comfort of your own driveway. Simply put your car in park, put your entire weight on both the front and rear ends of your car for a few seconds. When you release it, does it continue to bounce? If so, it might be time to have your suspension assessed.
Your car rides rough. - This is the easiest way to see if your car needs suspension repair: it simply rides rough. Over every bump, you worry that you might bite through your tongue.
Your car lunges while stopping. - When you press on your brakes, do you notice that your body seems to continue going forward while the rest of your car stops? Or does your car dip forward (and downward, usually) during this process as well?
If you are experiencing any of these, it might be time to have your suspension system checked out.
