An average car driver most likely doesn’t give much thought to a suspension system. Trailblazers, off-roaders and heavy haulers count on that system for support, smooth turning and to absorb the shock from rugged and uneven terrain. A vital element of that system in most trucks and SUVs are the leaf springs, which are bendable curved pieces of metal designed to handle bumps in the road. Although rugged and built to last, they have components, like leaf spring pads, that need maintenance to ensure a vehicle is ready for action. Even if you elevated your ride with body lift kits & suspension bushings
, its important to inspect the underside when things seem to be getting a little bumpier.
Stop the Screeching
Noise is often the best indicator that a vehicle may need a suspension inspection. Screeching, grinding or scraping mean metal is rubbing on metal. Oftentimes, worn out parts are the culprit. Since these parts are designed to spread out heavy loads and are typically attached to the ends of the vehicle, putting a 4x4 to the test eventually begins to takes its toll. An easy replacement of missing or damaged parts helps keep further suspension damage at bay. Look no further than 4 Wheel Parts to keep your vehicle road ready.
