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.

I needed my vehicle repaired within 2 days for a road trip. Silver Lake got it in, inspected and repaired in about 1 day. Fixed all of my issues and after 1,200 miles its running great!
I highly recommend this business and the manager Josh was very professional and Nice. They Kept me up to date on what problems they found and provided me with a detailed report with pictures showing the problem areas. They also have loaner cars at no charge which definitely helps lower the stress level when it comes to needing to get to work or around town.
Going to a mechanic is always scary when something is wrong with your vehicle and you have minimal knowledge about them. Silver Lake Auto was very courteous and thorough, complete with pictures. They laid out what needed to be done immediately and what can wait in "non-mechanic" terms. They also let us use a courtesy vehicle for a day so I didn't have the hassle of having to shuttle during business hours as well as have transportation to work the next day. They made that process easy and ... Read More

I originally called Silver Lake Auto & Tire when I tried to start my car one day after work and something just wasn’t right. It was idling really high and frankly, I was afraid to drive it. So, like any other person who may know nothing about cars, I googled the nearest place with the best reputation and, their name came up. And I’m so glad it did. I had them tow my car to their shop that evening and waited nervously the next day to hear back. The next morning, I was messaged all the ... Read More
I have a high mileage 14 year old luxury SUV. The body is in great shape, interior is flawless. The check engine light came on. I feared the worst. Although it was not inexpensive, they were very honest and professional. Gave me the option to have the repairs or not. No high pressure and they were spot on with their diagnosis and cost was exactly what tjey quoted. It was nice to have the courtesy car too. Great customer service. I will definitely return if I have service needs in the... Read More
