Suspension Repair & Service in Alexandria, OH
The suspension system impacts your ability to operate your vehicle. It absorbs the road’s bumps and bruises, allowing the car’s frame and body to remain stable and comfortable.
Unfortunately, the suspension will need repair over time. If you come to this point, contact the mechanic at Enright Automotive. We do suspension repair and services for Honda, Acura, and other Japanese and domestic vehicles.

Shocks and Struts Replacement in Alexandria, OH
Shock and strut replacement is a common suspension repair. While most think shocks and struts are a single component, they are independent but related parts.
Shocks offer measured resistance every time your vehicle bounces up and down or leans when making a turn. They work to help you enjoy a smoother driving experience. If your shocks are not well-functioning, you will have a rougher ride.
Most shocks are recommended to be replaced every 60,000 miles. However, some manufacturers suggest you schedule an inspection at least once a year. Always refer to your owner’s manual for the maintenance schedules.
Most front-wheel drive vehicles utilize the McPherson strut system. This system combines coil springs and shocks into a single unit.
Struts are engineered to manage suspension movement and springs. They ensure your tires are always where they belong—in direct contact with the road.
Although struts typically have a longer lifespan than shocks, you should schedule a strut inspection once a year.
Signs You Need Suspension Repair & Services
Your vehicle may offer you distinct signs when the suspension needs repair, like:
- Your vehicle drifting while the steering wheel remains centered
- Continued bouncing after braking or hitting bumps in the road
- A rough ride even on a relatively smooth road
- Difficulty handling your vehicle
- Uneven tire wear
