Premier Brake And Suspension Auto Repair in Colorado

When it comes to the safe and proper performance of your vehicle, its braking and suspension systems figure very highly. If something is wrong with either one, then two things happen: (1) your car becomes much more dangerous to drive, and (2) you risk damaging other components on the vehicle.

Campus Auto Repair is one of Northern Colorado's leading repair shops for brakes and suspension. Don't wait until it's too late! Bring in your vehicle for regular check ups and you'll avoid costly re-builds in the future.

Brake Auto Repair

A Northern Colorado leading brake shop, Campus Auto Repair offers comprehensive brake service options.

It goes without saying that your brakes are your vehicle's primary safety system. If you sense or hear anything strange in your brakes, then it's best to have them checked immediately. It's just too important to wait!

Here are some common brake issues that seen regularly:

  • ABS Light Comes On
    This means there's a problem with your vehicle's anti-lock brake system and you'll need to bring in your car for anti-lock brake repairs. You can continue to drive the vehicle if this light comes on, but it can be potentially dangerous when you're in an emergency situation. It's best not to wait to do anti-lock brake repairs—you never know when you'll need them!
  • Brake Warning Light Comes On
    This could be the result of a number of things: low brake fluid level, leaking brake fluid, or improperly worn brakes. If your brake fluid isn't low, or if the light remains on after you add brake fluid, then you may need replacement brake pads. Campus Auto Repair mechanics can determine if you need a brake overhaul or if your brake pads are okay. Replacement brake pads can be finished quickly, in as little as 1 to 2 hours.
  • Brakes Lock
    When you brake, the vehicle skids or veers sharply to one side. This is most likely a problem with your brake calipers or brake rotors, and it should be addressed immediately. Brake caliper repair is essential, and the sooner the better—once your rotors have to be replaced you're looking at a more expensive brake job.
  • Scraping Noise When You Brake
    Usually this indicates metal-to-metal contact and a long overdue brake job. Brake caliper repair and brake pad replacements aren't as pricey as total brake overhauls, so the sooner the better!
  • Squealing Brakes
    This annoying problem can have a number of causes, but usually indicates vibration between the caliper and the brake pads. Often this can be an easy fix, but occasionally it's a symptom of something more serious and needs attention. Bring the vehicle to Campus Auto Repair to quickly and confidently determine the severity of the problem.

Suspension Auto Repair

Northern Colorado's leading suspension shop is Campus Auto Repair in Fort Collins. Extensive knowledge of suspension systems on nearly all makes of modern vehicles makes Campus Auto Repair an invaluable resource for drivers experiencing that 'shaky feeling'.

Your Suspension System: Comfort & Safety
A suspension system is the combination of shock absorbers, springs and other linkages that connect your vehicle to the wheels. The purpose of this system is to find a balance between two opposing goals:

  1. keeping all four wheels in constant contact with the road to ensure safe handling, and
  2. maximizing passenger comfort and providing isolation from bumps in the road.

Your suspension system is not just about keeping you comfortable—it's also about keeping your vehicle on the road so you can keep handling it safely.

Usually suspension problems are subtle and occur over long periods of time. You may not even notice some potentially dangerous suspension issues on your vehicle. For that reason, it's best to include suspension as a maintenance concern rather than a repair. Campus Auto Repair always inspects your suspension whenever you bring your vehicle in for an oil change – at no additional cost.

Contact Campus Auto Repair to make a suspension inspection appointment.
