Suspension Service at Audi Oklahoma City

As you drive around Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Norman, you may not think much about your suspension, but it has important job to do. It keeps you stable and steady and provides a smooth ride, so you don't feel every bump and hole in the road. When parts need to be replaced, you can count on premium suspension service at Audi Oklahoma City.

What Your Suspension System Does

The suspension connects the steering components to the wheels and axles. It helps eliminate a rough ride from bouncing over bumps and hills. Another job of the suspension is to keep you safe as you control the direction the vehicle travels. Multiple parts make up the suspension system with each one playing a different part.

  • Control arm, which connects the steering wheel to the ball joints
  • Ball joints, which allow for movement of the control arm and steering wheel
  • Anti-sway bar, which keeps the steering wheel in line with the wheels
  • Springs, which control the height and level of the cabin when you are carrying a heavier load
  • Shocks, which absorb road impact to keep passengers comfortable

When your suspension is working correctly, you won't feel every bump and rough spot in the road. Your vehicle will also be more stable on the road. You may have an independent suspension, which means the wheels are separate from the axles. Vehicles have a front and rear suspension, which may not be the same.

Signs that Your Suspension Needs Repairs

Suspension systems are durable and don't require a lot of care. However, some parts may need to be replaced in time, especially if you travel over rough roads a lot or carry heavy loads. Some signs you can look for include:

  • The vehicle takes longer to stop even with good brakes.
  • You hear a squeak or clanging noise while driving.
  • You feel the vehicle pull to one side while driving and it takes more strength to keep it centered.
  • Your steering wheel turns to the side even when you're going straight.
  • The vehicle has more bounce or sway than normal.

If you see any of these signs, you need to have the vehicle inspected by the service team at Audi Oklahoma City.

Safety First with Your Suspension

When your suspension system needs repaired, it can be more difficult to control the vehicle. It's more dangerous to be on the road, especially if you have to change directions quickly or need to stop immediately. With the added bounce and sway, your vehicle is also an increased risk of rollover in an accident or when driving in high winds. It's important to have it checked out right away when you notice issues.
