Shocks, Struts & Ball Joint Replacements
Your vehicle’s shocks, struts and suspension play an important role in providing a comfortable and safe ride. That’s why it’s important to ensure your struts, shocks and ball joints are replaced once they reach a certain mileage. The useful life of a strut or shock concludes at approximately 50,000 miles.
If you notice warning signs of swaying, bounching, pulling, unusual sounds from the suspension system, dipping forward when stopping or the original parts haven’t been replaced within the 50,000 miles, schedule an appointment today!

FAQ steering & suspension
What does my suspension system do?
The suspension system not only absorbs impacts but also maximizes the friction between your car tires and the road surface. As a result, your car can effectively grip the ground so you can maintain control behind the wheel. Without it, your car would bounce, making for a dangerous driving experience.
How do I know when my suspension needs repaired?
You may notice more bumps in the road if your suspension is failing. If your vehicle pulls to one side when you turn the wheel, you may have worn-out shocks. Another sign is greasy shocks, which are usually a result of leaking fluid. Finally, you may notice uneven tire treads.
Why is my steering wheel so stiff?
Problems with electric steering systems usually indicate a failure somewhere in the electric power steering system, and it takes a scan tool and service information to diagnose and repair the vehicle properly. Come in to Harris Automotive for some professinal help.
What does a bad ball joint feel like when driving?
Feeling a vibration in the steering wheel while driving down a level, straight road, or your vehicle drifting to the right or left when going over bumps may also be signs of ball joint wear.
