Maintaining the Suspension on Your Luxury Vehicle

mechanic working on a vehicle

At GC Automotive & Performance in Jamesburg & Marlboro Township, we specialize in detailed knowledge of complicated, performance systems. One such system, which is becoming ever more precise and complex, is the suspension on your car. Luxury and performance vehicles are innovators and leaders in the suspension field; and as such, it takes leading technicians to service them.

Your car’s suspension is probably something you don’t think about very often. Typically, suspension parts wear out slowly and worsen over a long period of time, meaning you may not even notice that you have worn components until other parts have worn out or broken as a result. Your suspension is a combination of all the parts that connect your vehicle to the wheels - shocks, struts, tires, tie rods, sway bars, linkages, and metal and rubber bushings all work together to provide your car or SUV with ride comfort and handling ability. Your suspension defines the way your car rides and drives - a luxury or performance automobile is only as good as its suspension. Since suspension parts carry the weight of your vehicle, combat it’s momentum constantly to keep it stable, and regularly experience a wide range of motion, these parts are under a lot of stress, all the time - even when your car is just sitting there.

If you notice your ride isn’t that comfortable, faulty suspension parts are to blame. Squeaking and groaning sounds during direction changes or confronting bumps in the road, thuds and pops, excessive bounciness, poor ride quality, and unevenly worn tires are all symptoms of faulty shocks, bushings, bearings, and linkages. Don’t ignore the warning signs...bad suspension parts will wear out your tires and other suspension parts much more rapidly, and can be dangerous if neglected. Think about it; your suspension is what connects your car to your wheels, suspending it over the road, and account for steering. If something breaks, you will likely find your car incapacitated, with one wheel pointing in the wrong direction or the underside of your car resting fully on the ground.

With performance or luxury vehicles, the suspension is critical. While these systems are reliable, they are also precision-tuned and technologically advanced. Ride height, stiffness, traction control, and stability control are all factors at work here. Sensitive control modules, sensors, and even compressors and electric motors are what makes these cars so comfortable, so customizable, and so unique. A faulty wheel bearing or bad wheel sensor can deactivate or affect numerous systems, preventing your vehicle from performing its best.

The bottom line is, the suspension is key to maintaining a vehicle. If your car makes sounds of protest when you turn or hit bumps and dips, your tires are wearing unevenly, you’re experiencing systems malfunctions, or you just don’t think your ride is as comfortable as it could be, let one of our experienced technicians at GC Automotive & Performance have a look. Our mechanics can pinpoint your issue, and correct it in no time, whether you need new shocks, bushings, wheel bearings, strut replacements, diagnostics, and more.
