Suspension Service in Cumming, IA

Mechanic repairing suspension of a truck at Absolute Repair

The suspension system of your heavy-duty truck provides your vehicle with a cushion against the shock and impact of the road surface. Your suspension system helps your wheels to remain in even contact with the road, and smooth over potholes, rough roads, or off-road terrain so that you can brake, steer, and safely control your vehicle. A suspension system that functions correctly helps stabilize your truck, minimizes uneven tire wear, smooths the ride, and maintains the proper axle spacing and alignment.

Modern diesel truck suspension systems are incredibly robust but can be very difficult to diagnose when a vehicle is not maintained properly. For example, when a barely noticeable squeak or rattle is allowed to continue for an extended period, other suspension components such as tires or brakes can be affected.

In addition, a wide range of bushings, arms, bump stops, and other components are all required to work together perfectly to provide a comfortable ride. The suspension system on your truck can include all or some of the following:

  • Upper Control Arm
  • Lower Control Arm
  • Stabilizer Link
  • Sway Bar Bushing
  • Strut/Shock
  • Strut/Shock Mounts
  • Strut Bearing
  • Bump Stop
  • Spring
  • Spring Pad

What Our Customers are saying About Us

★★★★★

While on vacation recently we unfortunately encountered a broken axle on our travel trailer. Being from out of town and the fact that it was a Sunday evening we had no idea who to call for repair. The tow truck driver recommended Absolute Repair and we were towed to that facility. The tow truck driver notified the owner of Absolute Repair that we were in their parking lot. On Monday morning we were greeted by Andrew who evaluated the situation. Peter (the owner) and Andrew were very easy to work with and kept us informed of their efforts to secure a new axle. Once they had the axle they worked quickly and diligently to put the new axle on the trailer and we were back on the road late Monday afternoon. Peter himself worked with another tech to complete the repair. Peter and Andrew are both very knowledgeable, explaining in detail the repair, as well as being concerned for our comfort and offering us the use of their lounge. The repair price was very reasonable. Andrew even placed a follow up call to us the next day to make sure everything was fine with the trailer. We cannot speak highly enough of this company and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Our sincere thanks to Peter and Andrew for assisting us and getting us back on the road so quickly.
