Steering & Suspension

Steering and Suspension Services

The suspension system has two basic functions, to keep the car’s wheels in firm contact with the road and to provide a comfortable ride for the passengers.

A lot of the system’s work is done by the springs. Under normal conditions, the springs support the body of the car evenly by compressing and rebounding with every up-and-down movement. This up-and-down movement, however, causes bouncing and swaying after each bump and is very uncomfortable to the passenger. These undesirable effects are reduced by the shock absorbers.

Common Steering and Suspension Problems

  • Shocks and struts can wear out and affect handling. If your car bounces excessively over bumps and leans hard in corners, your shocks could be warn.
  • Ball joints wear and can cause your car to wander while driving down the road. This is dangerous as they can separate and cause you to lose control.

Pay attention to how your car handles. If you notice the ride deteriorating, bring your car in to any Davis Car Care Virginia Beach location to be checked.
