Suspension Service near New Orleans with Premier Honda



Most vehicle owners only think about the suspension of their car, truck, or SUV when the ride quality diminishes. For example, driving on a rough road becomes more of a chore when the suspension is not absorbing all of that bouncing. However, there are several other indications that the suspension on your vehicle needs the attention of the service experts at Premier Honda. Our team of certified experts knows that getting your vehicle's suspension issues corrected quickly is essential to the safety of you and your passengers. And our suspension service is always as affordable to ensure that you can keep your car in peak operating condition.

The Job Of A Suspension System

While ride comfort is important to drivers, a vehicle's suspension provides another, even more, essential service. The suspension helps to lessen the impact of a rough road with regard to your steering capability and control of your vehicle. If you have ever driven over a series of patches or potholes that unsettled the balance of your car, it was sure to be a frightening experience. Without functional suspension, your vehicle begins to bounce, and the wheels lose contact with the road's surface. Essentially, you cannot steer the car and are in a very precarious situation if other vehicles or obstacles are nearby.

Tips To Recognize A Suspension Issue

It can be tough to notice a suspension issue at first because the components usually wear slowly and over time. So rarely does a driver discover a sudden change in the handling of the vehicle. But a different driver could quickly notice some of the following handling problems:

  • The ride feels less smooth
  • The car leans excessively when you touch the brakes
  • The vehicle pulls, drifts, or wanders easily, especially when cornering
  • The car will not drive down the road in a straight line

There are also a few things that you might notice when looking at your vehicle that will indicate an issue with the suspension. These warning signs include:

  • The car is not level when it is parked; one side or corner is lower than the others
  • When you lean on the parked car, it bounces several times when you remove your weight
  • The tires have an uneven wear pattern called cupping- there are extremely worn patches of tread among other parts of the tread that are less worn
  • You can see obvious damage to the shocks and struts, including leaking oil or grease
  • You hear loud squeaking when turning or applying the brakes

The Dangers Of Bad Suspension

Obviously, when your vehicle's handling is less responsive, you have less control to avoid an accident. As suspension issues become worse, you will feel and actually be less and less in control of your vehicle.
