It’s actually pretty simple getting a car to last hundreds of thousands of miles. Start with a good vehicle, drive it carefully, and service it on schedule. One of the most overlooked aspects of routine maintenance is arguably the car suspension system. However, it is a crucial contributor to the overall functionality and performance of your vehicle. For suspension repair and service in Brookfield, Wisconsin, come by Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers!
Importance of the Suspension
What exactly is the suspension, and what does it do? Its main components are the wheels and tires, but it also consists of shocks, struts, control arms, bushings, and joints—pieces that harbor more importance than you may know. For example, shocks regulate suspension movement when traveling over rough surfaces, while struts affect alignment angles. If neglected, these items run the risk of malfunctioning, ultimately requiring suspension repair. The suspension system is what connects the vehicle to the wheels, consequently supporting the weight of the vehicle to ensure stabilized performance. Therefore, it is responsible for providing a smooth and controlled ride by absorbing road imperfections encountered while driving.
Signs You Need Suspension Service
All drivers experience potholes and road obstructions on a near-daily basis. Over time, however, these seemingly menial instances add up, resulting in the need for suspension service or repair. Even if you don’t frequently experience road irregularities, wear from everyday driving can lead to suspension service for certain components. A rough ride (indicator of worn shocks or struts), difficulty when steering (sign of low power steering fluid or worn power steering belt), or a low-sitting corner of the vehicle (result of a damaged spring) are all tell-tale signs your vehicle requires attention in the form of suspension service or suspension repair.
Car technology has changed a lot over the years, but science hasn’t. Moving vehicle parts are not invincible and remain prone to damage, environmental influence, and wear.. Here in our auto shop, our ASE Certified technicians utilize sophisticated equipment and genuine parts when performing service and repair on your vehicle suspension system. We can replace worn shocks and struts, replenish your power steering fluid, and repair leaking shocks. To support our suspension repair endeavors, every car repair service comes with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty for ultimate peace of mind on the road.

I got a nail in my tire and found myself a few miles away from this place. I called them, they got me in immediately, and fixed my tire on the spot. I was in and out within 45 minutes. Fantastic customer service and friendly staff. I will definitely be back in the future should I need anything else. A+
I had a great first experience with Silver Lake when I used them for the first time ever to replace a leaking water pump. Josh was great. Their communications (texts, emails, phone calls, detailed estimate) were outstanding and something I was not used to getting from other auto service shops. I plan to buy new tires from them next month. And I live within walking distance of them. I feel like I've found a new friend!
First time using Silver Lake Auto had emergency and lost all power. Had SUV towed to them. They were helpful and provided detailed report on repairs needed. They did an awesome job on repairs and SUV running like new. Highly recommend and working with Chris was great.
Clean shop. Great initial service. Offered to drive me home after they get a look at my car on Thursday. They also perform emissions tests for free, which is nice. Will follow up after job is done.and experience is complete. So far so good UPDATE: Silver Lake worked hard and figured our what the problem with my car was. It wasn't something a simple diagnostic could identify. Done and repaired. Car drives great! These folks get a👍.
Came here for a tire rotation and wheel alignment on my Tesla Model S and was very happy with the result. The pricing seemed reasonable (everything is getting more expensive, now that shops have to do extra calibration for driver-assistance features), the service took about an hour less time than they told me to expect, and most importantly...they didn't change my seat presets. Everyone I talked to was very friendly and very up front about what they would be doing and how much it would cost. ... Read More
This was the best experience I have ever had dealing with car issues, hands down! We have a conversion mini van that is not easily towed and one call to Silver Lake Auto in New Berlin and they came to the rescue and went above and beyond. They were very communicative and did excellent work. I will definitely come here for all future needs. Would highly recommend, plus the cookies were delicious.

I was very happy with the service, they stayed in contact with me and gave updates. The communication was outstanding! I also loved that they have a women mechanic! Overall it was a great experience and would recommend them to all my friends in the New Berlin/Milwaukee area. Too bad I live in Madison and only had it towed there when my car broke down on my way home from Milwaukee, otherwise I would go to them for all my car maintenance needs.
Excellent Customer Service and everyone is very friendly! Amanda was our Service Advisor and she was so easy to work with and very thorough explaining things. We had a comprehensive diagnostic report done on our vehicle I was impressed with how detailed the report was which even included pictures of the areas of concern. They even gave us a free loner car while they had our vehicle! Will definitely use them for any service needs in the future and as a little added bonus....refreshments and c... Read More
Sarah is exceptional at making sure all the details are covered. The work is done perfectly. I had custom wheels mounted and TPMS sensors installed.
