Suspension Repair Service in Plainfield, Illinois

Mechanic repairing suspension of a truck at TVA Repair

Suspension system components are vital for control, comfort, and safety. Heavy-duty diesel truck’s suspension are subjected to wear and tear over time. Leaf springs, airbags, hangers and shackles also negatively affect the performance, handling and quality of your ride.

Your suspension system allows your wheels to stay in even contact with the road. It enables you to drive smoothly over rough roads, potholes, and off-road terrain. The suspension system is what enables you to brake, steer, and control your vehicle safely. Think of the suspension system like a cushion for your vehicle that protects it from shock and impact from the road surface. When your suspension system is intact it helps to stabilize your vehicle. It provides for an overall smoother ride and helps maintain the proper axle alignment and spacing. 

If you operate heavy equipment everyday, the wear and tear can negatively impact the functionality of your equipment. A solid suspension system adds comfort to your ride allowing you to maneuver your load on several different types of terrain. The talented technicians at TVA Repair Service are certified to best handle all of your suspension needs. We want you to enjoy the quality of your driving experience and will ensure your suspension system is up to standard. 

Proper maintenance is important, especially in the case of suspension systems because they can be difficult to diagnose. Major issues with the suspension system won’t happen overnight. Usually, these issues take time to develop, unless you have suffered some major damage.

Here are some examples of suspension issues:

  • An excessive tilt of your truck when it makes 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

Unwanted erosion of the suspension system evolve over time, which can make it difficult to determine an issue until it visually comes to your attention. To prevent these problems from occurring, book an inspection with our solutions-orientated team today to ensure that you aren’t surprised by unnoticed damage. An inspection will prevent you from having any worries about unwanted damages. Think preventively and you won’t be bombarded by the stress, cost, and undesired downtime of emergency repairs. 

What is a worn suspension system?

This is when damaged shocks and struts can’t effectively absorb road impact or soften the bumps. With this type of suspension wear, you will feel every hole and every bump on a broken road. It can affect the vehicle’s ability to make a turn or take a stop. Book routine inspections with our team at TVA Repair to avoid serious accidents that can be caused by worn suspension components.

It is important to get regular maintenance and suspension inspections because your suspension system endures a lot. Regardless of how strong your truck is, roads are rough, and over time, the shocks created by bumps and potholes in the road negatively impact the overall performance of your vehicle. Air springs are created to provide the comfort of leaf springs with strong coil springs, but road damage, debris or over or under-inflation can impact your truck’s performance. 

The quickest, most effective and easiest way to prevent damage to the suspension system is to have a qualified technician at TVA Repair take a look at it. We will perform all the necessary repairs, maintenance schedules and annual inspections necessary for your vehicle. For every 12,000 miles, depending on your driving style or the style  of your vehicle, you may need to inspect more or less frequently.

I have been a CDL-A driver with full endorsements for over 2 years. I found myself forced to job hop from a few companies based on unsafe equipment, promises unmet, and some accepted company cultures of driver complacency, poor hygiene and negative unhappy work force. I have found the opposite of those unfavorable conditions. This is the job I envisioned when I decided to get my CDL License and fulfill a life long desire to drive for a living. The staff are so polite and highly intelligent. They don't act like they care but it is clear they care very much about operations, driver relationships and hometime. I am very polite, professional and positive in my personality. That is my nature. I have found a company I am proud to be a part of. I never wonder what other drivers are being paid any longer. The pay, like the company structure itself is excellent.
