Frame and Suspension Repair in Ithaca
Collision repair in Ithaca can address everything from accidents involving other vehicles, wild animals and stationary object. But did you know that a lot of Ithaca collision repair centers around suspension and frame damage?
That pothole you hit this morning may very well cause extensive damage to the suspension of your vehicle. In fact, very few cars manage to hit a pothole without causing some issue needing repair. The suspension is the first thing to take a beating. This is what causes your car or truck to ride smoothly over normal roads. You don’t want to be hearing squeaking, or have your car pulling one way or the other. Significant damage can occur to the major axle parts and to the wheels themselves.
Wink’s Body Shop has the best suspension equipment in Ithaca and the trained technicians to actually repair the damage right the first time. If the damage is too significant to be safely repaired, we can provide suspension replacement services to get everything back as it should be.
Safety is the biggest concern here. Damage to the suspension, frame and/or hidden damage to the axles and wheels could leave you stranded if (and when) it finally breaks. Driving a vehicle with suspension or frame damage puts you and your family at risk for a very dangerous situation should the affected part break while traveling.
Our Ithaca body shop requires our technicians to be thoroughly and expertly trained in all aspects of body, frame and suspension repair and best practices. When you bring your car or truck to us to evaluate and provide an estimate for the damage repair, you can be assured we will explain everything to you as far as what needs to be done and why. Collision repair in Ithaca requires each Ithaca body shop to be sure all safety measures are adhered to and that damage that renders a vehicle unsafe to drive be handled appropriately.
