Suspension System Components We Will Check:

Shocks

Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle’s shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit 41st Street Automotive today.

Struts

Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car’s struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road’s surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car’s suspension. This means that struts support your car’s weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call 41st Street Automotive at 605-334-5252 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

Tie-Rod Ends

When a car is in motion and you need to change direction by taking a turn, tie-rod ends help direct the vehicle and enable the turning of the wheels. As such, taking turns becomes easier and they eliminate any unnecessary torque on the wheels in every turn the vehicle takes. If your steering wheel is wobbling, most probably, the tie-rod ends are faulty and at that point, the best thing to do is to call in 41st Street automotive experts who will inspect the vehicle and advice on necessary repairs.

Ball Joints

Ball joints aid the safe operation of both the suspension and steering of your car by attaching the wheel hub to the suspension. The nature of ball joints in cars is such that they enable horizontal rotation for the steering and vertical rotation for shock absorption. These joints may damage under normal conditions after many miles or when there is contamination from dirt inside them. By calling 41st Street Automotive professionals to repair the ball joints on your vehicle you are assured of great results. If you are considering the best auto repair in Sioux Fall, SD, then, you need to reach out to these experts today.
