What are the rough roads doing to your car suspension?

Feb 9th, 2020

Car suspension systems should continue to operate effectively for many years and over long distances, holding your tires’ footprint on the road.  Eventually, components do wear out, but how long that takes depends a lot on how you drive in MN.

As you can imagine, if most of your driving is on smooth highways, your shock absorbers will last a lot longer than if you do most of your driving on bumpy Corcoran roads or hauling heavy loads.  In addition to just wearing out, suspension components can be damaged in an accident or by a hard impact – like hitting a pothole, a curb or a rock in the road.

This year, with the warm weather we had a few weeks back, potholes have been showing up much earlier and it’s harder to repair them in really cold weather.

Because the life span of shocks can vary so widely, your vehicle manufacturer recommends periodic inspections.  During an inspection, your Pro-Tech Auto Repair Inc service technician will check for worn, broken or missing car suspension parts.

If the inspection reveals any problems, take care of this important safety and handling work.  When you replace your shocks, it’s usually a good idea to replace all four at the same time.  That’ll give you even handling at all four corners of the vehicle.

If you have special road handling needs like improved cornering or towing or hauling requirements, your Pro-Tech Auto Repair Inc service advisor can recommend an upgraded shock or strut to get you what you want.
