Suspension Service and Repair
With Suspension Service from Your Colorado AAMCO Center, it’s a Smooth Road Ahead
Your vehicle’s suspension system helps provide a safe and comfortable ride by ensuring that your wheels stay in contact with the road. If your ride’s gotten bumpy, it’s time to have your suspension system, shocks and struts checked by the expert technicians at your local Colorado AAMCO Suspension Repair center.
You can tell if your vehicle has bad shocks or struts or worn springs if your ride has become bouncy or uncomfortable, if your vehicle bottoms out, the front end of the vehicle dives or loses control while making a sudden stop, the vehicle swerves more than normal when you change lanes, of if the vehicle sags in the front or the rear.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, Visit a Colorado AAMCO location for a FREE ProtectCheck® Inspection and we’ll help you find out whether you need new shocks, struts, or other suspension service. We guarantee our services with the Best Nationwide Warranty. Learn more now.
Shocks are designed to provide measured resistance when the wheels on your vehicle move up and down, or when your vehicle’s chassis leans when you turn. The quality of your shocks helps determine how smooth your driving experience is. Due to the constant motion your car, truck or SUV shocks can often wear out in 25,000 to 30,000 miles.
Given the importance of shocks to your vehicle, many manufacturers recommend that you have your shocks checked once a year with a certified suspension service. This inspection is included in your Colorado AAMCO location’s FREE 36-point ProtectCheck® Inspection.
The McPherson strut suspension system, which is used by most vehicles today, combines coil springs and shocks into one unit. Struts control spring and suspension movement, which keeps tires in contact with the road. Struts are more expensive, but have a longer life than normal shock absorbers.
Struts do also experience wear, however, and many manufacturers recommend they are checked once a year. A strut inspection is included your Colorado AAMCO Transmission & Total Car Care FREE 36-point ProtectCheck® Inspection.
Coil Spring Service
Coil springs work together with shocks and struts to keep your vehicle’s bounce to a minimum. As they age, all springs will sag and weaken. Coil springs should be checked once a year. A coil spring inspection is included in a FREE ProtectCheck® Inspection.
Schedule an Appointment for a FREE Diagnostic Test or contact a Colorado AAMCO location near you so we can get you back on the road, without all that extra bounce.
