There are times when it seems like you can feel every single tiny bump on the road. Maybe your car lurches forward every time you come to a stop. Or, the handling just seems off, especially when you are turning sharp corners. These could signs of wheel alignment or tire issues, but there's a good chance that your suspension system is to blame.
Suspension System Damage
Especially after a long cold winter, your vehicle's suspension can take a lot of abuse. Ice, wet roads and road salt can kick up with grease and other contaminants as you drive. They get under the vehicle and cause damage to brake and suspension components. If you also drive a lot on the mountain roads around Colorado Springs, you will also put some extra strain on your suspension with a lot of hilly driving, tight corners and rough roads.
Suspension System Inspection
It's a good idea to get your suspension checked out periodically by a professional mechanic like the experienced automotive technicians at LightHouse Automotive in Colorado Springs.

If suspension repairs are recommended, we'll let you know what needs to happen, how long it will take and how much it will cost before you approve any work to be done.
