Welcome to Schmidt Auto Care | Springboro, OH

Whether you’re looking to get work done on your car’s suspension system or your car’s steering and suspension systems, we’re here to help at Schmidt Auto Care. We’re experts at everything that has to do with your vehicle’s suspension and are happy to repair it as quickly as possible. However, we can’t repair a suspension problem if we don’t have the car in front of us!

Below, we’ll guide you through some ways that you can recognize suspension trouble when you see it so you can bring your car in, get it fixed, and get back on the road. We’ll then dive into some other details about suspension repairs, like what they are, what they cost, and more.

Common Signs of Suspension Problems

If you notice any of these signs of suspension trouble, we advise that you bring it in at the first sign of these issues to avoid costly repairs that could be needed if you ignore these signs and keep driving, further damaging the vehicle and its suspension.

Steering Problems

If you have difficulty maintaining steering wheel control generally, but especially after hitting a large bump or pothole, it’s time to get your car’s suspension checked.

Extra bumps while driving

If you’re experiencing more bumps in your ride than there seem to be on the road while driving, chances are you’re dealing with a suspension issue. Be especially wary if these bumps seem abnormally loud.

Uneven Sides

If one side of the vehicle rides lower than the other, or even one corner, this is a telltale sign that you’ve got a problem with your vehicle’s suspension.

Momentum Issues

If your vehicle dips while braking or rolls to one side while cornering, there is a good chance you could use some suspension work done on your car.

Squeaking while steering

If you hear squeaking while steering, this may not be a steering problem and could be the first sign that there is something wrong with the suspension, though possibly just lubrication.

What Suspension Service Is

First, our technicians do a thorough inspection of the vehicle, which may involve a quick test drive to see what’s going on with the car. We also may perform a preliminary bounce test to determine which areas of the suspension system are lacking. One aspect that we’re looking for is any parts that show excessive wear. This inspection tells us what parts need to be replaced or, if possible, repaired.

Vehicle suspension service include many things. As you can see above, suspension can even impact your vehicle’s steering. Believe it or not, a vehicle alignment is a suspension fix different from a tire balancing. Wheel alignment involves slightly adjusting the vehicle’s suspension so it can steer adequately. However, if your tires are showing uneven wear, that’s a sign that you may need an alignment.

Additionally, some suspension problems may call for a strut replacement, which is an integral part of the suspension that supports the weight of your vehicle. Your vehicle may use a shock shaft instead of a strut, or it may use either in the front or back. Just like struts, these are incredibly important parts of your car’s suspension system that we are happy to service. Whether you’re riding on shocks, struts, or both, we’re here to restore your vehicle to its original performance.

How Much Does Suspension Repair Cost?

Depending on the components that are damaged and what needs to be done to service your vehicle back to optimum performance, the cost of your specific suspension repair may vary significantly.

With that in mind, the general range for suspension repair cost is between $200-$5000. While this range may not exactly be helpful, it is good to keep in mind that the longer you go without a suspension repair, the more repairing it will cost, as damaged parts of the suspension can further damage other parts of the suspension.

How Can I Reduce the Cost of Suspension Service?

Bringing your vehicle in for regular maintenance is the best way to prevent any need for suspension repairs and keep costs down if you do need them. During these preventative maintenance checks, our mechanics can notice minor issues before they get large enough that you have a steering problem or experience large bumps on the road, for example. While there is a cost upfront for these preventative checks, they save money in the long run by preventing expensive repairs in the future.

With that in mind, when and if you do notice any sign that there may be something off with your suspension system, the earlier you bring your vehicle in as soon as possible to keep the costs down. Simply put, it is less costly to repair fewer damaged parts that have less damage. We’re here to help. However, we can only fix what’s in front of us. It is imperative to bring your vehicle in at the first sign of any suspension problem.
