What’s That Noise? | Bixby Auto Care

Those noises you're hearing could indicate a problem with your car’s suspension. It’s time to visit the reliable Bixby auto care technicians at Same Day.

It’s not really surprising that a national ranking by Quote Wizard Insurance News says that Oklahoma has some of the worst roads in the country. According to a summary of the report, “33 percent of Oklahoma roads are in poor condition, Oklahoma drivers spend $900 on repairs because of bad roads, and 14 percent of all bridges are structurally deficient.”

And, yes, that is bad news for the suspension systems on cars and trucks.

“Suspension components, including springs, shock absorbers (or struts on some vehicles), anti-roll bars, control arms and other parts, are like combat troops serving on the front lines: They take a pounding daily from potholed streets, railroad tracks, rain, snow, road salt, gravel, all manner of dirt and grime, and the occasional piece of scrap metal or other debris that drivers see too late to avoid,” according to cars.com.

Cars.com adds, “Under those conditions, just about any part of a suspension system can be damaged or worn out from years of abuse.”

How do you know if your suspension system is damaged? Well, the prime way is your ride: How comfortable is it? Does your car pull to one side? Does your car bounce a lot when going over bumps?

But there are also noises that can clue you into a problem, says cars.com:

  • A knocking sound when going over bumps could indicate bad struts.
  • Squeaking and creaking, especially when turning, could indicate bad ball joints.
  • Clunking or rattling could mean a problem with your control arms.
