As temperatures continue to rise and everything around us thaw from winter ice and snow, it's crucial to ensure your vehicle's brakes and suspension are in top condition for safe springtime driving. Here's how to check and maintain these critical components:

Brake Inspection:

  • Visual Inspection: Check the brake pads and rotors for signs of wear, such as uneven wear patterns or excessive rust. Replace worn brake pads and damaged rotors to maintain your vehicles braking performance.

  • Brake Fluid: Check the brake fluid level and condition. If the fluid is dark or contaminated, flush and replace it to prevent brake problems and maintain braking efficiency.

  • Brake Lines: Inspect the brake lines for signs of leaks, corrosion, or damage. Replace any compromised brake lines to ensure reliable brake operation and prevent brake failure.

Suspension Check:

  • Shock Absorbers: Check the shock absorbers or struts for signs of leakage, damage, or wear. Worn or damaged shocks can affect vehicle stability and handling, leading to increased stopping distances and decreased control.

  • Suspension Components: Inspect the suspension components, including control arms, bushings, and sway bar links, for signs of wear or damage. Replace worn or damaged components to maintain proper alignment and handling.
