What’s Does My Car's Suspension System Do?

Suspension parts absorb unexpected motion from the road. Without a fully functioning suspension system, your car will be harder to control. Problems with the suspension system can cause premature tire wear, negatively affect wheel alignment, and increase gas mileage.

Common Indicators of Suspension Problems:

  • Unusual shakes and vibrations
  • Bottoming out during bumps
  • Excessive bouncing and swaying
  • Leaking shocks or struts
  • Nose-dives when braking

A loss in stability or handling are signs you should seek a suspension inspection. Depending on the results of the inspection, our staff may need to replace suspension parts in order to restore performance.

Steering & Suspension Repairs in Baton Rouge

We perform the following services:

  • Ball Joint Replacement: Ball joints are found in virtually all vehicles and work a lot like our hip joint. They connect your wheels to the rest of your suspension system. If you have bad ball joints, you may hear a banging sound, have trouble steering, feel vibrations in your steering wheel, or see uneven tire wear.
  • Tie Rod Replacement: If your car shutters or shakes back and forth while driving, your tie rod might need replacement. When a tie rod is loose, your car might begin pulling to the left or right as it follows cracks and bumps in the pavement.
  • Shocks Replacement: Excessive bouncing is a sign that your shock absorbers are worn out. Shocks are usually found on the front of a car.
  • Struts Replacement: Excessive bouncing is also a sign that your struts are worn out. Struts are encased by a coil spring that absorbs the shock from coil springs and are often found on the back of your car, although trucks usually have them on the front and back.
  • Suspension Inspection: Our inspection identifies whether your steering and suspension system is causing you trouble or whether it's something else. For example, we'll be able to tell if you need a ball joint replacement or wheel alignment.
  • Sway Bar Link Replacement: Also known as the anti-roll bar, your sway bar connects the front and rear suspension and helps you every time you round a corner by forcing your inside wheel toward the ground to reduce body roll. If you're vehicle handling is off or you hear clunks or squeaks, it might be your sway bar.
