Suspension Repair Service
Clunk! Bang! Bounce! Shudder! Does your trusty commuter sound like a brick in a concrete mixer? Are you still bouncing long after hitting that pothole? Automotive suspension repair sneaks up on drivers, but rarely do components fail catastrophically without symptoms. That's why your next visit to your local NAPA Auto Care should include a full suspension inspection. Finding good car suspension repair shops is easy thanks to our 17,000+ locations nationwide.
SIGNS YOU NEED SUSPENSION REPAIR
- Clunking/banging when going over bumps
- Continued bouncing after a bump
- Excessive leaning when going around corners
- Drifting feeling on the road
- Irregular tire wear
- Sagging ride height
- High mileage
Just because the engine of your car, truck or SUV runs fine doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the need for a comfortable ride. Car suspension repair rarely has anything to do with the ability to get somewhere and everything to do with getting there safely. A worn suspension can affect steering control and even how quickly you can stop. If a tire is bouncing like a basketball, then it is not in contact with the road for when a sudden stop is necessary. So, don’t put off an automotive suspension repair, treat it with the importance it deserves.
Suspension Repair at NAPA Auto Care
If you are riding comfortably in your Toyota Camry or Ford Taurus, but it is more than 10 years old, you are probably due for new shocks and struts at a minimum. Suspension components are under extreme forces at all times, even when sitting still. Bushings and ball joints need to remain flexible, while also controlling several tons of car, truck or SUV.
You may think that ‘floaty ride’ is comfortable, but it is also a possible sign of completely worn-out shocks and struts. Worn-out bushings won’t hold suspension components in their place, leading to a drifting feeling going down the road. Even stout looking components like coil springs and leaf springs can wear out, allowing your vehicle to sit too low.
How Much Does Suspension Repair Cost?
Suspension designs can vary depending on the vehicle, and costs go up for advanced technology like active suspension systems ($1,000 to $4,000 for shocks) or air ride suspension systems ($1,000 to $2,000 for air springs). Swapping out shocks or struts can cost anywhere from $400 to $1,000 depending on your make and model. Sway bar end links range from $100 to $400. New control arms can cost as little as $250 or up to $2,000. That’s why it is important to pick the right suspension repair shop for the job.
