Suspension service in Castro Valley is a necessity. Roads in the Bay Area are full of potholes. Many cities experience ongoing road construction, with city streets dug up, with steel plates and temporary asphalt patches everywhere – if you ever drove over a steel plate that had not been set flush with the road (and most are not), you know how much stress is placed on your car’s suspension.
Suspension components wear out. It’s a fact of life. So as your car ages, shocks or struts replacement will become a necessity. Moreover, ball joints will wear out, CV boot may get torn, tie rods mayneed replacement, suspension springs, control arms, anti-sway bars - all suspension components form an intricate web of parts that work together – move, shift, and adjust to provide your vehicle with a smooth and safe ride. This constant motion combined with age will necessitate repairs.
Developing suspension problems are often not easy to spot. Improved suspension designs and high parts quality result in modern suspensions that deteriorate gradually, so we don’t feel sudden change in ride quality. That’s why at Adams Autoworx we perform complimentary digital vehicle inspection with every service or repair. Part of the inspection is to check various suspension components for damage and sings of wear.
