If you live in or near Fontana, Corona, or Pomona, our technicians at Mark Christopher Cadillac are here to help you get back on the road safely, so bring your vehicle in for our quality suspension service.

Understanding Your Suspension and Steering

Your suspension and steering are intimately related; they work in concert to ensure that your tires stay on the surface you are driving on and that you stay in control of the vehicle. They work well together until a suspension problem makes your vehicle hard to handle.

If you notice uncharacteristic squeaks, sways, or bounces, or if you have to work extra hard to turn the steering wheel, it can mean a problem with either system. In this instance, you should probably talk to our Service Center about a diagnostic on your vehicle to identify problems you may be having with either your steering or suspension. After your diagnostic, we will take the time and explain what’s going on and the options for repair for your safety and the safety of others on the road.

Suspension Service Near Pomona, CA

Problems with the suspension system can make it more difficult to handle your vehicle. It may sound different as you drive or turn. Your car may lean into turns heavily, the back end of your vehicle may drag when you accelerate, or your front end may take a nose dip when you brake. All these things can lead to more costly repairs down the road. By fixing the issue when it first arises, you can prevent further damage or problems with safety.

If your suspension is damaged, it may feel like you have lost some of your control. Problems like nosedives, excessive leaning, and dragging are precursors to an increased rollover risk and stopping time.  To stay safe and comfortable whenever you drive, have your suspension checked out at Mark Christopher Cadillac.

How Can I Tell If I Need Suspension Service?

Suspension troubles leave some pretty noticeable signs:

  • Broken springs can present as a corner of your vehicle sitting lower than others.
  • If you were to lean heavily on the front of your vehicle, and then back off, bouncing more than twice can mean bad shocks and struts.
  • Uneven wear patterns on your tire treads.
  • Obvious wear signs like oil or grease leaking from shocks or struts.
  • Turning or braking accompanied by squeaking sounds.
  • Rough rides.
  • Leaning forward, backward, or off to the side when you brake.
  • Pulling or drifting on turns and curves.
  • Drifting to one side when driving straight.
