Clark Automotive is considered an essential service and so we continue to remain open and ready to serve the people of Blaine and surrounding communities with a wide range of automotive services. Even during relatively mild winters, Minnesota tends to treat our cars and trucks roughly, and your vehicle’s suspension is under constant stress from the road conditions that worsen in winter. Potholes are everywhere, and that means that cars and trucks are bound to develop suspension and alignment issues.
The weather does not need to be dominated by incessant snowfall to create road hazards. A period of intense cold, combined with rain, snow, or other precipitation will cause cracks in streets, highways, and roads to become potholes, which are made deeper and more severe by the many thousands of vehicles that drive over them every day. Even after potholes are repaired, unless they are repaired with great care, the uneven surface that results can cause suspension damage to your vehicle.
Suspension And Alignment Check
Clark Automotive has the experience and expertise needed to repair that damage to your vehicle. If you discover that the last pothole you hit created obvious damage to your suspension, the fix is likely a simple one. It could likely mean that your vehicle is now in need of a new set of shock absorbers or struts. Driving a car or truck after obvious damage has been done to shocks or struts may make this damage worse, so it is always smart to have your car looked at if you are concerned. If you need new shocks or struts, the task of replacement is, for a team as experienced as ours, pretty simple.
Alignment issues are slightly different. A car or truck that has gone out of alignment will pull to one side or the other while moving, and this increases the likelihood of uneven wearing of your tires. You may not notice that your car has gone out of alignment right away. But over time, hitting a pothole that might not have damaged your shocks or struts could have created the misalignment. Realigning your vehicle is also not terribly difficult when the service is provided by a qualified technician, but it does require attention to detail.
