Your shocks and suspension system are essential to not only the functionality of your vehicle but also to the safety of you and your passengers. The primary function of a vehicle’s suspension system is to allow the wheels to function and move independently of the car while keeping it suspended and stable. Any uncontrolled movement made in your suspension system can have a huge impact on the deterioration of your car’s handling.

Suspension System
Worn or loose components affect the suspension system’s ability to control motion, which can result in a deterioration of vehicle handling and stability, as well as accelerated tire wear.

The main components of the suspension system are:

  • Control arms
  • Ball joints
  • Springs (coil or leaf)
  • Shock absorbers
  • Struts

East Ridge Fast Lube’s professionally trained mechanics are happy to inspect and repair the needed components of your vehicle’s shocks, struts or related services.
