If you’re noticing a bumpy ride or something seems off balance with your vehicle, it may need a steering or suspension service. At O’Leary’s Automotive Repair, we offer steering and suspension services to the greater Wilmington area.

Key Components of Your Suspension System

Your vehicle’s suspension system helps to minimize road bumps and vibrations and makes riding in your vehicle more comfortable. It also guides the handling of your vehicle on the road. The suspension system includes these key components:

  • Shocks
  • Struts
  • Ball joints, CV joints and axles
  • Bushings
  • Power steering and steering fluid
  • Differential

Signs You May Need a Suspension Repair

Under normal driving conditions, components of your vehicle’s suspension system can wear out. However, this process can occur much more quickly if your vehicle drives through potholes or hits curbs. The most common signs of a worn or damaged suspension system are fairly obvious. If you are experiencing any of the issues listed here, a steering and suspension inspection is recommended:

  • Vehicle pulls to one side
  • Vehicle seems extra bouncy
  • Wear pattern on tires is uneven
  • Vehicle makes a noise when driven over bumps
  • Steering wheel is difficult to turn, especially at low speeds

Steering & Suspension Inspection & Repair

When you bring your vehicle to O’Leary’s Automotive Repair, a suspension auto mechanic will give it a thorough inspection. This inspection is the first step in diagnosing the problem. The mechanic will examine all of the components of your steering and suspension system, and may perform a test drive to replicate the issue.

After a full diagnosis is complete, our auto mechanics will give you a cost estimate for repairing your vehicle. With your approval of the estimate, the mechanic can begin working to restore your vehicle’s suspension service and get you back on the road again.
