Suspension Repair in Burlington, ON | The Auto Station

To be sure, engine performance has the curbside spectator appeal, but it’s the drive that makes the difference on meeting expectations.  The Auto Station has a team of car repair and maintenance technicians that understand the service and maintenance needed to keep your car driving at its peak performance.  Staying ahead of the curve means having the suspension of your car properly serviced and maintained.

The job assigned to the suspension is to maximize the contact and surface tension between the tires and the road surface, to maintain steering stability, and to ensure the comfort of the passengers.  If all roads were perfectly flat, with no bumps or dumps suspensions wouldn’t be needed.  But roads are far from that.   Even fresh paved highways have enough dips and dives to send the driver of an improperly maintained or suspended car careening out of control as the wheels are forced into vertical motion on meeting these imperfections that can be very hard to control. 

Properly aligned steering and suspension can help deliver a smooth and controlled ride - we at The Auto Station can help ensure that with quality suspension repairs that are affordable for drivers in Burlington, ON.

How does the suspension system make my car safer to drive?

Without a dampening system, the vertical energy of the wheels moving over bumps would be transferred directly to the frame of the car.  In this case, it is possible for wheels to lose contact with the road completely on meeting any large bumps.  The following downward force would result in the wheel slamming back onto the road surface which would cause skidding, sliding, and steering challenges.  Weak or worn suspension systems result in similar conditions and this exact type of poor driving experience.  We believe a smooth ride is no accident.

A properly functioning suspension system controls the forces at work on a moving car.  The primary vehicle dynamics our technicians try to extend are:

  1. Ride – the ability to smooth out a bumpy road
  2. Handling – the ability to safely accelerate, brake, and corner

These characteristics are controlled by coil springs, shocks absorbers, struts, stabilizer bars, torsion bars, air suspension, and other components that wear under normal operation of your vehicle.  Proper attention and maintenance to the suspension of components under your car, can make for a much better experience in your car!
