What Can Go Wrong With Your Suspension System?

To understand what can go wrong, you’d have to understand how the suspension system functions first. Your car’s suspension is not one single part. It is made of many different parts that work together. These parts include the:

  • Shock absorbers (dampers)
  • Shock and struts
  • Joints
  • Bearings
  • Bars (coil springs and others)
  • Linkages
  • Bushings
  • Control arms
Suspension Repair

It is important to note that a truly functional suspension requires healthy tires, a good steering system, and wheels. These are loosely part of the suspension.

What does this system really do?

The parts of the suspension system work to make the best use of the friction generated between your car tires and the road. This translates to a more pleasant driving experience.

How can you tell if your suspension is bad?

You don’t have to be an auto mechanic to know this. There are many hard-to-ignore signs that you’ll need to bring it in for suspension repair.

Greasy shocks

If you notice your shocks have become coated with grease, you should consider it a suspension issue.

An uncomfortable ride

The suspension ensures smooth rides. Most car owners can tell if something feels off.

If you step out of your vehicle rather rattled, bring it in for checks. A common culprit would be worn shock absorbers.


With an out-of-touch suspension, your vehicle takes a literal nosedive. What this means is, your car doesn’t stop when you want it. Scary? Yes.

If it moves as though it’s about to take a plunge, then your vehicle is due for suspension repair. Most commonly, this would involve replacing the shocks.

Worn tire treads

If a part of your tire treads is worn, especially faster than usual, it points to unequal weight distribution. We would usually trace this down to a suspension problem.

Unusual noises

A gentle hum or even the good old hearty rev is fine. An unusual or worrisome noise may indicate an issue.

Suspension Repair Service 1

I just had my first experience with these guys, and based on how friendly, accommodating, quick and fair-priced they are with general maintenance, I can say without a doubt that I'll be going back to them in the future. Peter was pleasant and candid from the moment he answered my first phone call to the moment I left with my car. And while my car was in the shop, TLC offered complimentary rides to and from my house.

Steering issues

Getting behind the wheels is truly taking control of the steering system. Although there are other causes, a stiff and unresponsive steering wheel may point to a suspension issue.

Traction issues

Driving should be a relatively seamless activity. Your suspension system absorbs a considerable amount of pressure as you move.

If there’s insufficient traction due to a suspension problem, you may have an avoidable struggle on your hands.

What the Auto-Repairers Do

We would usually begin with an inspection of the entire system. We do this to identify the make and model and any problems it may have. At this stage, we’re also able to detect any potential problems (to be nipped beforehand). The goal is to not miss a spot.

After the diagnosis, we go on to tackle each specific issue. The shock absorbers, shocks, and struts are replaced if necessary. Any loose bolts or joints are tightened. We’ll ensure all linkages are intact.

The brake system is repaired if faulty. We don’t forget to take a critical look at your steering system. Professional wheel alignment and tire repairs may be a part of this holistic service.  

Benefits of Suspension Repair

Wondering what you stand to gain?


Safety while driving is non-negotiable. With a faulty suspension, your vehicle is a road hazard. Suspension repair saves you the stress of an out-of-control vehicle.


You deserve to travel in comfort (and style). With a functional suspension, your trips are generally more comfortable even on rugged terrains. Suspension repair saves you needless jolts and jeers.

Suspension Repair

Saves money and time

Although it seems like the opposite, professional car suspension repair saves you unnecessary costs and downtime. If the issue isn’t fixed early, it can lead to more extensive, time-consuming, and costly repairs.

Prompt repair also gets your vehicle back on the road as soon as possible.

Prolongs your vehicle’s lifespan

Like many others, you’d most likely want to get your money’s worth. Your car will serve you for much longer if you don’t let suspension issues linger.

Other services

If you have a busy schedule, making a trip to your mechanic for maintenance may be quite a hassle. It isn’t a good idea to wait till there’s a problem. However, with suspension repair, you may access some maintenance services at the same time.

To maximize your car’s suspension system, don’t wait till your car becomes unsafe to get the suspension system checked out. Remember, the state of the roads you drive on and your style of driving make a huge impact on the state of your car’s suspension.

Alternatively, find out the recommended mileage for your car and replace the system when necessary. This is typically around 50,000 to 100,000 miles for most vehicles.
