Jacksonville Suspension Repair & Maintenance


Shocks


In a conventional suspension system, shock absorbers help hold your tires to the road when going over rough surfaces or stopping suddenly.

Maintenance and automobile:

Shocks should be checked about once a year by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic and are inspected as part of Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck. Shocks generally wear gradually and you may not be able to detect noticeable changes in the automobile’s handling or ride quality; a professional inspection can pinpoint any concerns.

Signs that shocks are worn are the classic bouncing, swaying or rocking back and forth. SUV and light truck owners may want to consider an upgrade in shocks, which can significantly improve quality and handling in these automobiles. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO.

Struts


Most front wheel drive automobiles and trucks use a strut suspension system rather than shock absorbers. Like conventional shock absorbers, struts help hold your tires to the road when going over rough surfaces or stopping suddenly. Struts are built into the suspension system and can affect automobile control, wheel alignment, and tire wear.

Maintenance and automobile:

Struts should be checked about once a year by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic (and are inspected as part of Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck). The shock absorber portion of the strut will typically wear out gradually and you may not be able to detect noticeable changes in the automobile’s handling or ride quality; a professional inspection can pinpoint any concerns. Worn struts can be detected by symptoms such as bottoming out, bouncing, swaying or rocking back and forth. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO.

Springs


Different springs are used in different suspension systems. Many automobiles have coil springs, and leaf springs and air springs are also common. Springs basically support the weight of the automobile. Struts are built into the suspension system and can affect automobile control, wheel alignment, and tire wear.

Maintenance and automobile:

Springs should be checked by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic about once a year (and are inspected as part of Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck). Springs over time can gradually wear and break. Bottoming out, poor handling and wear of other suspension components are signs of a worn spring. Consider an upgrade in the quality level of the springs if your automobile often automobileries heavy loads. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO.

Ball Joints, Idler Arm, Pitman Arm


Ball joints are a suspension component used on the front end of almost all automobiles and light trucks. The idler arm and pitman arm are used in conventional suspension systems, typically on rear wheel drives and many light trucks.

Maintenance and automobile:

Ball joints, the idler arm and the pitman arm should be lubricated at every oil change, if applicable. All suspension components should be checked by a Jacksonville AAMCO mechanic about once a year (and are inspected as part of Jacksonville AAMCO’s ProtectCheck). Typical signs of these components being worn are a automobile that wanders or has erratic steering and uneven tire wear. Bring your automobile to the mechanics at Jacksonville AAMCO.
