Suspension Repair Andover

Have you ever watched a suspenseful car movie that made you want to go out and get in your minivan and just take sharp turns around the neighborhood? Oh, we are the only ones watching that one? Okay, fine! Just try watching ‘The Fast and The Furious’ and then pull up next to a sports car on a deserted stop light. In all honesty, you may not need sharp turns or a fast car to feel what those cars are feeling in the movies. At Clark Automotive, we understand the ins and outs of cars. If you live in or around Andover, MN, it may be time to check your car’s suspension!
In just about every recently dated car, the suspension systems on the cars are located in the front and rear to help you, as the driver, have a good quality ride. How is it that we don’t feel like those cars in the movies when we take a turn even going 35 mph? The sway bar links on a car or truck is the first line of defense. It reduces the car sway when it turns. Sorry, minivan lovers, your days of feeling like you are in a race car are over! Well, unless your sway bar links are broken. Another issue that may happen are the struts and/or shock absorbers. When these need to be replaced, you can sometimes even feel the ride quality change. However, it’s not an immediate issue. You may not even notice until someone else takes a drive or you hop in another car. Lastly, we all know that driving in Andover, MN is not easy. The pot holes and torn up roads will always lead to suspension issues like ball joint replacements, springs loosening, tie rod ends changed out, control arms replaced, and even various bushings. So, how do you really know? If you are suspicious of your suspension, Clark Automotive can help!

The alternator. For those who aren’t experts in car mechanics, there’s a good chance that you don’t really know what an alternator is or what it does. It’s also likely that you are only reading this because someone told you that an alternator replacement is in your near future. If this is you, welcome to Clark Automotive. We are your auto mechanic experts for Andover, MN so that you don’t have to be.
Dim lights, weak or dead batteries, weird smells, odd sounds, and that infamous warning light that alerts you when something is wrong. These are all nice, little warning signs that your alternator may be running towards the bright light. The alternator is the electric generator of your car. Think back to physics. The alternator converts all of the mechanical energy your car is making into electrical energy. This current runs the engine and lots of other accessories. Headlights, radio, windshield wipers, and the heated seats of certain cars are just a few examples. Basically, anything that requires electrical energy is sourced through the alternator. So when it’s time for an alternator replacement, you’ll know it!
