Inside Auto Repair: Suspension Edition

auto repair



Your vehicle’s suspension system is a complex working of springs, shock absorbers, and links. Connecting your inner workings of the vehicle to the wheels, if one element is off, you’ll know it. The suspension helps with the ability to safely and comfortably remain in contact with the road. As the most trusted Nashua auto repair shop, our team at Durabild Transmission Service Center is here to ensure your vehicle stays running its best.

Although we’re here for you, knowing the signs of a failing suspension system is a must for every driver. Here, we’re providing you with three signs that it is time to give us a call.


  1. The vehicle favors one side while driving.

A telltale sign that your vehicle needs suspension repair is if when it pulls to one side. For various reasons (especially New England potholes), your tires may have been thrown out of alignment. If left unattended, unaligned tires lead to more costly auto repair needs.


However, a misalignment may not be the only reason your vehicle is pulling to one side. The safest path is to have your trusted Nashua mechanic inspect and diagnose the problem.


  1. The road is bumpy, but not that bumpy.

Everyone likes a smooth and comfortable ride. This is where the shocks and struts come into play. If you’re feeling every bump in the road, chances are, these two elements are asking for a little TLC. Even the slightest pothole can cause shocks to leak, and if left unrepaired, they can quickly become damaged beyond repair.


  1. Steering your vehicle seems difficult.

If turning the wheel seems more difficult than normal, especially when driving slow, your suspension is asking for help. There are various components that may contribute to this incident –


  • Low power steering fluid
  • Faulty steering pump
  • Leaky power steering rack
  • Loose or worn belts
  • Worn control arm bushings


No matter the situation, at the first signs of unusual behaviors in your vehicle, it’s time to call Durabild Transmission. As experts in auto repair, diagnostics, and transmission rebuilds, you can have confidence that you’ll be back on the road in no time.
