Suspension Repair San Diego
The suspension system is located in the undercarriage of your vehicle around where the wheels connect to the body. Most modern suspensions consist of a myriad of different parts like springs, links, and dampers that all work together to adjust to the various road conditions you drive on. No two suspension systems are alike, which is why you can trust the experts at Aero Auto Repair to make things right. Here are some examples of what you may need with a steering or suspension system repair:
- Shocks and Struts: These parts cushion your car and keep it from bouncing when you drive over uneven roads or in construction. The shocks use oil to cushion your vehicle’s bounce, and leaking fluid is a common problem. If you have a leak, your shocks or struts will need to be replaced to improve vehicle performance and keep the rest of your suspension system in good working condition.
- Control Arms: This connects the chassis of your car to the wheels, and is connected via ball joints. Over time the ball joints will start to wear out and can cause your steering to vibrate or make loud clicking noises. We can inspect and replace the ball joints and ensure that your vehicle’s control arms are working as they should be.
- Bushings: These are insulators that pad different parts of the suspension. They also reduce noise and friction to absorb the impact of bumps in the road. As they crack or wear out, they can no longer protect your vehicle from a rough, uneven ride and may start to scrape against other metal parts in the suspension system. We will identify and replace all worn-out bushings to protect your vehicle
