Truck and Car Suspension Repair and Replacement

Davenport Suspension Repair and Maintenance - Dale's Service CenterAt Dale's Service Center our auto repair shop provides suspension repair and related services to customers in Davenport, IA and throughout the Quad Cities. When you need an auto mechanic who is highly skilled in car and truck suspension, you can rest assured knowing the work will be performed by the best in the business.

You probably know that good suspension makes for a smoother ride, but what is it exactly? Shock absorbers, springs, and linkages make up the suspension system which supports your car or truck's weight and connects it to the wheels. When shocks and struts are in good working order you enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride without bouncing each time you come across bumps or uneven road surfaces. Your vehicle will brake and turn more smoothly without jerking, shaking, etc. Taking care of minor suspension repair issues now will help you avoid headaches (and an uncomfortable ride) down the road. It will also make your tires last a lot longer as well. Your vehicle is also safer when it handles, brakes, and steers the way it is meant to.

How do you know if suspension repair may be in your future? Here are a few indicators:

  • Steering seems more difficult, or slips
  • Vehicle pulls to the side
  • Tires vibrate or stray
  • Driving over dips or uneven roadways is difficult
  • After driving over a bump your car or truck keeps bouncing
  • Upon stopping, your vehicle "nose dives"
  • Clunk noise when going over bumps
  • Vibration in steering while driving

If you want to avoid potentially costly repairs, consider having your suspension system inspected at a minimum of once each year.

What Causes Suspension Problems?

Something as seemingly harmless as hitting a pothole can result in damage to the components of your shocks and steering system. If the components of your suspension system are worn, you will have less control of your vehicle as stability is reduced. If your car shocks and struts are bad or tires aren't properly aligned, it can affect suspension. Suspension repair is just one of our specialties, and you can rest assured that if there is a problem, our technicians can handle it.
