Suspension Service at D.C. Auto in Suwanee

Posted February 23, 2020 8:32 AM

During an inspection at D.C. Auto in Suwanee, your friendly and knowledgeable automotive service technician will check for worn, broken or missing parts.

Here's a quick rundown of suspension system components:

There are the springs which hold the weight of your vehicle. There are several varieties of springs. Springs are heavy duty parts that rarely break or wear out. Shock absorbers work in conjunction with springs to smooth out the ride and help keep the tires on the road. Good shocks are essential for handling performance and ride comfort.

You've probably heard of struts. They combine a shock absorber and a coil spring in one unit. Shocks and struts will wear out over time. If your tires develop a cupped wear pattern, your shocks or struts may be wearing out. This is from the shocks bouncing unevenly. You may notice a floaty or drifting sensation when cornering. If the front of your vehicle dives excessively when stopping, or rocks back and forth after you've stopped, your shocks may be worn out. And if they are leaking fluid, it's definitely time to replace them at D.C. Auto.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, visit D.C. Auto for a suspension inspection. Same applies if you've been in an accident that involved one of your wheels. If your vehicle suspension actually fails, it could lead to a serious accident, so don't put it off.

When you replace your shocks, it's usually a good idea to replace all four at the same time. That'll give you more even handling. Talk with your friendly and knowledgeable pros at D.C. Auto because you don't want a big difference between the performance of your shocks from wheel to wheel, and replacing all may be the safest bet.

There are different grades of shocks and struts. You always want to use a replacement shock or strut that equals the one that came as original equipment when your vehicle was new. But remember, they were designed to meet the expected needs of the broad range of Suwanee people who buy that particular vehicle. Your needs may be more specialized.

For example, if you want increased handling performance, your D.C. Auto service advisor can recommend an upgraded shock or strut specially designed for improved handling. If you haul heavy loads or trailers in Suwanee, we can recommend some heavy duty shock absorbers.

I've taken my car to D.C. Auto a few times now and have been impressed by both their honesty and quality of work. Tom has always given me an accurate estimate and they've fixed the problem the first time. They were able to diagnose and fix a problem with the rear brake rotor, when the local Mazda dealer claimed it was a faulty caliper and wanted to charge me $500 to replace them both. Having seen Hank work on my car, it was clear I was watching someone who takes pride in his work. I will be taking my car solely to D.C. Auto in the future.
