Suspension System: Your Key to a Smooth & Safe Drive

Your vehicle’s suspension system plays a crucial role in ensuring a comfortable and secure driving experience. It acts as a cushion, absorbing impacts from rough roads and maintaining consistent tire contact for optimal handling and braking. However, like any mechanical system, continuous use leads to wear and tear of essential components such as shocks, struts, and bushings. This wear can gradually degrade your car’s performance and safety, resulting in a bumpy ride, decreased handling precision, and longer stopping distances.

Is Your Ride Uncomfortable?

Shocks and strut performance is our specialty.

Suspension: Essential for Optimal Driving

Your car’s suspension system is more than just shocks and springs. It’s a complex network of components working together to provide a smooth, safe, and controlled ride. Understanding these components and their maintenance is key to maximizing your vehicle’s performance and lifespan.

Ball Joints

These flexible connectors allow your wheels to move while staying aligned. Master AutoTech Logan meticulously inspects them for wear, replacing them as needed to ensure precise handling on our local roads.

Control Arms

These sturdy components link your wheels to the car’s frame. We check for bends or worn bushings, ensuring your suspension stays aligned and your vehicle tracks true on Logan’s diverse terrain.


These rubber cushions absorb noise and vibrations. Our team identifies worn bushings and replaces them, restoring a quiet and comfortable ride for your daily commute.


These support your car’s weight and absorb bumps. We monitor for sagging or broken coils, ensuring proper ride height and a stable feel even on rough roads.

Shocks (Dampers)

These control spring movement, preventing excessive bouncing. If you hear rattling or notice leaks, our experts will promptly replace worn shocks to maintain a smooth ride.


These units combine spring and shock functions. We inspect them for wear and replace them in pairs, maintaining your car’s structural integrity and ensuring a safe and enjoyable drive.

Suspension Wear & Tear

Your vehicle’s suspension system is designed to withstand regular wear and tear, typically requiring component replacement around the 50,000-mile mark. However, Logan’s unique road conditions, including potholes, uneven surfaces, and occasional harsh weather, can accelerate wear and necessitate earlier attention.

Furthermore, unexpected events like accidents, frequent hauling of heavy loads, or off-road excursions can put additional stress on your suspension, leading to premature wear and potential damage.

At Master AutoTech Logan, we understand the local driving challenges. If your vehicle displays any signs of suspension trouble – unusual noises, a rough ride, pulling to one side, or uneven tire wear – don’t delay. Prompt inspection and maintenance by our experienced technicians can prevent further damage to your vehicle and ensure your safety on Logan roads.

Decoding Your Suspension’s Silent Signals

Your car’s suspension system tirelessly absorbs the daily stresses of Logan’s roads. However, its silent endurance can mask underlying issues that, if ignored, can escalate into costly repairs and compromise your safety. Here are the clues your suspension might be sending:

Uneven Tire Wear:

Tires should wear evenly across their tread. If you notice one side wearing faster than the other, or if you see cupping or scalloping patterns, it could be a sign of misalignment caused by worn suspension components.

Vibrations or Shaking:

A trembling steering wheel or a ride that feels excessively bumpy, especially at higher speeds, might signal worn shocks or struts struggling to dampen vibrations. Loose steering parts, often exacerbated by potholes, can also contribute to shaking.

Rattling or Clunking Sounds:

These unsettling noises, especially when driving over bumps or uneven terrain, often indicate loose or damaged suspension components. Worn ball joints or bushings can produce these sounds.

Pulling to One Side:

If your vehicle drifts to one side, even when you’re not actively steering, it’s not just an alignment issue. It could also signal worn control arm bushings or tie rod ends.

Shocks bottoming out:

A harsh thud or bump when you hit a pothole or speed bump could mean your shocks or struts have lost their ability to absorb impacts.

Excessive Bouncing:

If your car continues to bounce after hitting a bump, instead of quickly settling, it’s a clear sign that your shocks or struts are worn out and can no longer effectively dampen the springs’ movement.


If your vehicle lurches forward excessively when braking (nose-diving) or squats back when accelerating, it could indicate worn shocks, weak springs, or other suspension problems.

Oil Leaks:

If you notice fluid leaking from your shocks or struts, it’s a sure sign of a damaged seal. This not only indicates that the component is failing but also that it’s losing the hydraulic fluid necessary for proper function, compromising your safety.

Preventive Suspension Care: A Smart Choice

To avoid unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs, we recommend a yearly suspension inspection, ideally combined with your annual alignment. This proactive approach ensures optimal performance, enhances safety on our varied roads, and can even extend the lifespan of your suspension components.
