Our vehicle's suspension system (i.e., shocks or struts) is something we often take for granted. However, after supporting several tons of metal year after year, eventually the shocks will wear out and suspension repair will be necessary.However, having a bad suspension can greatly affect your ability to control the vehicle, especially when stopping or turning, so it's in your best interest not to ignore this part of auto maintenance.Here are six things to watch for getting alerted.
- Car rides roughly
- Drifting or pulling during turns
- Dips or "nose dives" when stoppin
- Uneven tire treads
- Damaged, "oily" shocks
- Try the "bounce test"
