Your heavy-duty truck’s suspension system helps your wheels to remain in even contact with the road, and smooth over potholes, rough roads, or off-road terrain so that you can brake, steer, and safely control your vehicle. Essentially, the suspension system provides your vehicle with a cushion against the shock and impact of the road surface. A suspension system that functions correctly helps stabilize your truck, smooths the ride, and maintains the proper axle spacing and alignment.
Today’s suspension systems are incredibly robust but can be very difficult to diagnose when a vehicle is not maintained properly. For example, when a barely noticeable squeak or rattle is allowed to continue for an extended period, other suspension components such as tires or brakes can be affected.
In addition, a wide range of bushings, arms, bump stops, and other components are all required to work together perfectly to provide a comfortable ride. The suspension system on your truck can include all or some of the following:
- Upper Control Arm
- Lower Control Arm
- Stabilizer Link
- Sway Bar Bushing
- Strut/Shock Mounts
- Strut Bearing
- Bump Stop
- Spring Pad
When to seek out suspension service
When to seek service will depend on the type of springs you have in your vehicle. The team of expert mechanics at Schroeder Truck Repair specializes in fixing leaf, coil, and air springs.
Leaf and coil springs are essential to the suspension systems of large commercial vehicles. But over time, shocks, bumps, and potholes can impact their integrity and performance.
Over/under-inflation and damage from road debris can impact air spring performance over time. Regular maintenance and inspections are essential.
