When you first get your car, you can’t help but be proud of yourself because let’s face it, getting a car is a major milestone in your adult life. Of course given how expensive cars are, you want to make sure that your car lasts long enough for you to make sure that your investment was worth it in the long run. As with any machine, maintenance is necessary. So, regular inspections can help identify any potential problem and sort it out before it gets any worse. However, we sometimes get lazy about maintenance checks and end up skipping them.
A problem in your car’s suspension can really affect not just the quality of your drive, but also your car’s running life in the long run since your suspension does basically absorb shocks that your car will otherwise have to deal with. So, we’ve listed a few pointers to help you identify if there any problems in your suspension.
- You will notice that your drive is no longer smooth in the sense that turning, dealing with rough roads etc. seems a lot more difficult than it used to be.
- If you notice a squeaking or creaking noise every time you turn your car, it could be your suspension acting up.
- Another way to check if your suspension has issues to abruptly brake your car in a safe area, if the nose of your car dives or moves downwards as you stop, there is clearly a problem in the shocks since it is unable to properly support the weight of your car.
- Another way to check is to inspect if your car is level when it is parked. If you notice one side of your car appears higher than the other on an even plane, there is a problem.
