Suspension and Winter

Your vehicle's suspension bears the weight of your vehicle, absorbs bumps in the road and controls the body as you steer.  Vehicle suspension parts are connected by joints that allow all the components to move as they should. Over time and miles, the joints start to wear and your suspension gets loose and doesn't operate as precisely as before, reducing proper tire contact with the road. An accident, pothole or hitting a curb or rock can also damage or break vehicle suspension components.  When one suspension component is worn out and loose it puts extra stress on the good components.  This  stresses everything else and causes premature wear to the whole system.Signs of suspension problems include uneven tire wear, vibration, rattles or clunks when you hit a bump or turn on a windy road, or the vehicle pulls to one side.If you suspect a suspension problem, ask your friendly and knowledgeable pros at AutoPro Import Repair in Worcester MA to have it inspected.  We can also check your alignment while we are at it. Taking care of a worn or damaged suspension component early, will head off future damage and repairs down the road.
