You know the feeling when you are driving. It seems like you feel every single little bump on the road. Your car vibrates on the highways or pulls a little as you make turns. Every time you come to a quick stop, your front end buckles. These are all common signs of suspension problems, and they shouldn't be ignored.
A Matter of Safety
When your suspension is weak, it may just seem like an inconvenience to have your ride feel more uncomfortable. However, a failing suspension can lead to bad things. For starters, it's not safe. If your car is bucking around like a wild bronco or not cornering well, it can be really dangerous to drive. This is especially true here in Colorado with a lot of driving on mountains, hills, rough roads and wet/icy surfaces in the fall and winter months.
A Sign of Bigger Problems to Come
In addition, any failing suspension components such as shocks/struts, springs or assembly parts can lead to bigger problems. A bad suspension can affect the brakes, wheel alignment, wheel bearings, drivetrain, axles, differential and more. Believe us when we tell you replacing a few damaged suspension parts at the first sign of issues is much less expensive than major repairs to other automotive systems.
