Your car’s suspension is made up of a variety of parts that can cause problems when they wear out or become damaged. The main two components are shocks and struts. As shocks and struts start to become worn, it can not only make for a bumpy ride, but increase your braking distance on rougher road surfaces. This can even cause “body sway” causing your vehicle to lean when switching lanes or making turns. Our ASE certified mechanics provide expert suspension repair service in Rancho Santa Margarita.
Aside from shocks and struts, the issue could also be a result of damaged or worn out control arms, sway bar links, control bushings or ball joints. If you hear a clunking or popping noise when you hit a bump, this could be a worn ball joint or one which is not lubricated properly. The rubber bushings can also make these sounds when they start to harden, but they can easily be replaced. When you start to notice troubles with your car’s suspension it’s a good idea to have it looked at by a seasoned mechanic.

With steering or suspension component issues, you’ll be in for a rough ride even
on an ordinary street. Your vehicle’s frame is attached to its wheels by an
arrangement of shock absorbers, springs, and linkages that are meant to keep the
ride smooth even when the road isn’t! When any part of your suspension weakens
or fails, the other parts are forced to work beyond their original mechanical
design. Regular suspension and front-end checks at 106 ST. Tire & Wheel can
avoid costly problems that start out little and become major issues down the
road. As with most mechanical things, we want to prevent failure of the system
by replacing parts early.
STEERING AND SUSPENSION wear will have a negative effect on your driving
experience. Handling problems like unusual movements over bumps or turns can
