Have you ever driven over a pothole that was especially rough? Do you hear odd noises under your car when making a turn? Before you end up stranded on the side of the road, check your vehicle for these signs that you need suspension repair.

Rough Ride
This is perhaps the most common symptoms of a suspension issue, usually associated with bad shocks or struts. When the shocks or struts wear out, they cannot absorb the impact of the dips and bumps in the road. This can leave you feeling like you just rode a roller coaster after a drive to the store. Don’t overlook this discomfort! Bad shocks and struts can reduce safety and hinder your ability to stop quickly.

Uneven Tire Wear
Because your tires connect your vehicle to the road, they can tell you a lot about your car’s suspension. If your wheels are out of alignment, you might see single-side wear on your tires. Damaged suspension components can lead to cupping or scalloping on your tires, which may call for premature tire replacement. Don’t waste money on new tires; check your suspension!

Pulling or Drifting During a Turn
If you feel your car sway or pull to one side during a turn, you might have worn shocks. Not only is this annoying, it can increase your chances of a rollover accident. If you hear any knocking sounds, you might have bad tie rods or failing ball joints.

If you notice any of these signs that you need suspension repair, don’t ignore them! Call Rolling Auto Service for mobile suspension repair in Venice, FL at 941-493-6511!

What to Pack in a Car Emergency Kit

If you’re putting together a car emergency kit, there are many scenarios to consider. After all, you want to be prepared for anything. Instead of purchasing a pre-assembled kit, pack your items in a bag or 5-gallon bucket (but be sure to keep certain items within reach of the driver’s seat). Here’s what to pack in a car emergency kit:

The Essentials
No matter who you are or where you’re driving, there are a few things you should always have in your vehicle. While some may seem unnecessary, you’ll be thankful that you have them in an emergency situation. Whether you get a flat tire or run out of gas, be sure to keep these items handy (and know how to use them!):

- Emergency food and water
- Tire changing supplies (spare tire, tire iron, tire jack)
- WD-40 - Duct tape
- Jumper cables
- Your car’s manual
- Flashlight
- First aid kit
- Paper maps
- Seat belt cutter and window breaker tool

Personalize Your Kit
Now think about who rides in your car often, where you drive, and any times when you wish that you’d had X, Y, or Z. Do you have a dog or small child? Pack emergency food for both, a spare leash, waste bags, baby wipes, and anything else that comes to mind. If you’re driving to an area with cold weather, consider purchasing an ice scraper and gloves. Go to the beach often? Keep sunscreen and a towel in your car.

Optional Items We Encourage
In addition to the essentials and your personalized items, there are several other items that may come in handy. Consider packing a weather radio, change of clothes, umbrella, a tire pressure gauge, paper towels, and emergency flare or reflective triangle.
