Cunningham’s Automotive Repair provides a wide range of services for automotive suspension at our automotive repair shop in Ottsville. If you think you are having problems with your suspension, bring your car or light truck to our shop and let one of our trained technicians provide you with a complete suspension system inspection and offer various service suggestions to keep your car or truck in optimal performing condition.

Your car’s suspension keeps your car up off the road and helps provide an even, stable, and smooth ride. Your suspension system has many parts. If you look under your car, it’s basically everything that connects your wheels to the car’s frame. These are heavy duty parts that do a lot of work. They need to be inspected for damage and excessive wear at least once a year. A good time for this is when you get your annual alignment service.

Here are some warning signs that your suspension may have problems:

  • The car pulls to one side
  • It wanders
  • The steering is erratic
  • You see uneven tire wear
  • You experience a poor ride or handling
  • You hear clunking or rattling when hitting bumps
  • Some suspension parts just wear out with use. And some suspension pieces need to be lubricated when you get your oil changed. Your service advisor can oversee an inspection and tell you what problems you may have.

If you’re in an accident, your suspension can be damaged or knocked out of alignment. Even a minor accident, like hitting a curb around Ottsville or even a large rock can mess things up. So if you have an accident, get your suspension system inspected right away. Suspension problems should be fixed immediately because they can lead to unsafe handling.

One big cause of suspension problems is potholes. Here are some tips for avoiding damage from potholes: First, keep your tires at their full air pressure. Next, when you see a hole you can’t miss, slow down before you hit it. Don’t brake directly over the pothole. That will cause the car’s weight to shift forward and add to the potential damage.
