Despite the size of your trailer, maintaining your steering and suspension system components is essential for control, comfort, and safety. Over time components such as leaf springs, airbags, hangers, and shackles can diminish performance due to normal wear and tear. This will affect your handling of your trailer and affect ride quality.
What are some signs of suspension issues?
- The tilt of your trailer as you make a turn
- The ongoing bounce after hitting a pothole or bump in the road
- The pull of the steering wheel as you drive
- Tires that wear quickly or unevenly
A worn suspension system will allow you to feel every bump, hole and crack in an uneven road. This suspension can also affect the control of the vehicle when you make a stop or make a turn. Regular inspections and maintenance is required for worm suspensions or else it may lead to catastrophic accidents that could have been prevented with the proper care.
With every moment that you drive your trailer the suspension is hard at work. It is essential to use leaf and coil springs in order for your trailer to absorb the impact of rough roads. These shocks caused by rough roads impact their integrity and performance. It is important to make regular maintenance and inspections of your trailer.
The wear of suspension system components is gradual. Noticing the signs of an issue can be hard until the actual damage is done. Scheduling an inspection of your suspension system with our experienced technicians can put your mind at ease, and also help save you a lot of money in the long run. Additionally, an inspection allows you to decide why and when to perform a service instead of personally dealing with the stress, cost, and downtime associated with an emergency repair.
