Suspension Repair Albuquerque

All it takes is one deep pothole to cause significant damage to your vehicle’s suspension. You have choices when it comes to suspension repair in Albuquerque, NM. Choosing a vehicle repair service with technicians skilled in suspension repair can mean the difference between a smooth ride or rough handling at the wheel.

Shocks and struts

A safe, smooth ride in any vehicle starts with shocks and struts. Together, these two suspension system components provide crucial road control and safety. Sure, they protect you and your passengers from a bumpy ride. They also keep your tires in contact with the road, which is kind of important for controlling your vehicle.

Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing shocks and struts every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on how aggressively you drive your vehicle. If you frequently travel on rough roads, that also can reduce the longevity of shocks and struts.

Warning signs of a failing suspension

You don’t have to wait until your vehicle’s suspension completely fails (although some drivers do). Ignoring the warning signs of a failing suspension can cause damage to other vital components of your vehicle, costing you more in the long run.

If your vehicle is doing any of these things, it’s time to call Rio Grande Auto for suspension maintenance or replacement:

Continued “bouncing” after hitting minor bumps or a “dipping” movement when applying the brakes.

Difficulty steering or maintaining control of the steering wheel.

Drifting or pulling to one side during turns.

Lower appearance of one side of your car when it’s parked.

Uneven tire wear can create “bald spots” and reduce traction.
