Every driver appreciates a smooth and balanced ride. Do you know what makes that possible? The suspension. The suspension system is responsible for creating a fluid, stable ride by absorbing road imperfections. It also helps support the weight of the vehicle, ensuring optimal balance while driving. If you start to experience handling or steering issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Silver Lake Auto & Tire Centers in Hartland, Wisconsin, for expert suspension repair.
How Does the Suspension System Work?
Although horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph times are the first things that come to mind when someone thinks of a car’s performance, the suspension is one of the most influential. The suspension system is located on the underside of the vehicle, situated between the frame. It comprises a network of components, including the tires, springs, shocks, struts, arms, bars, linkages, and bushings. Working together, the system absorbs bumps and other road flaws, minimizes bounce, and maintains stability. The springs, shocks, and struts are predominant in terms of operation. The springs are what absorb the various road impacts (such as bumps), which are supported by the struts, and the shocks absorb any remaining movement that is detected.
How Do I Know If My Suspension Needs Repair?
Considering that the suspension is designed to facilitate a smooth and steady ride, signs that it’s not operating correctly are often clear. For example, a rough performance often indicates a problem with the system; “rough” refers to feeling every bump in the road and, as an effect, your vehicle “bouncing” in correlation to the movement. Difficulty steering, such as pulling to one side or when driving at low speeds, is a common symptom of suspension troubles. Left ignored, suspension problems can result in a greater loss of instability and compromise your safety. If your vehicle seems to shift forward and downward when you engage the brake pedal, or if your vehicle sits lower at one corner (often a sign of a broken spring), we encourage you to bring it in for inspection and the right suspension repair.

Honestly, best automotive service I've ever received! Josh was kind, understanding of my situation, and helped me prioritize the repairs to a car that needs a little love based on safety and logevity. He also was able to provide me with a loaner vehicle which made my day much easier to manage. I dropped off in the morning, we talked before noon, car was ready before 4, and it feels great! And they took it to the carwash for me!! Wow! What more could you ask for! Thanks for the super positive ... Read More
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
VERY friendly service, honest, they kept me updated through the whole process. I'm taking my car there from now on. Thank you to the friend who recommended them.
Awesome work and communication, especially with an autistic young lady who is new to auto repair! Thanks and keep keeping your on!
Amazing! Called to see about an appointment. Phone was immediately answered by a pleasant voice and cheery greeting. I explained what I needed and was put on a VERY short hold. Alycia (sp?) came back on the line and said to drop it off whenever I could. They would have a loaner for me to use. I arrived to a clean shop and was now greeted by a smiling face and same cheery voice as before. In less than 10 minutes, I was on my way back to work in a very clean loaner. I received a call a few hour... Read More
Just had my Audi serviced at Silver Lake and wanted to share my experience. Kezra took my appointment for an oil leak I had and was able to schedule me in for repairs and repair my car in less than a week! Her customer service, attention to detail and responsiveness is next level. Kudos to Kezra and the team down at Silver Lake! I will be coming back for any future services needed on my vehicles.
It’s been a few years, thankfully, since we had to do any major work to either of our vehicles. That said- I thought the brake lines work we needed was a bit expensive, However, we needed the vehicle towed there at the end of on day, and they fit us in for the inspection the next morning. A courtesy call that afternoon for the work I needed, plus a full recommendation list of a few items I should address soon for proper upkeep and maintenance; all complete with pictures on a website format...
