When a car’s suspension does not work properly, it is more than just an annoyance – it’s dangerous. To maintain full control of your vehicle, a properly working suspension system is necessary.

No matter what type of suspension system your car has, our Dallas auto repair experts have the tools and experience to diagnose and repair your shock, struts and suspension problems. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that your shocks and struts need maintenance about once every 50,000 miles.

Alignment

A wheel alignment is the adjusting of the wheel angles so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The reason for the alignment is that it maximizes the life of your vehicle and helps with steering. If your wheels are out of alignment it can cause your car to unnecessarily drift one way or the other , and your tires will wear unevenly. This could lead to having to replace your tires more often as well as great difficulties steering. Steering problems can eventually get worse and cause a hazard to the driver and those around you.
