Why is my car bouncing up and down?

Why is my car bouncing up and down?

Suspension Issues: Problems with your car’s suspension system can lead to bouncing. This could be due to worn-out shock absorbers, struts, or other suspension components. If these are not functioning properly, they can’t effectively absorb the bumps and shocks from the road.    Tire issues: Uneven tire wear, low tire pressure, or imbalanced tires can cause your vehicle to bounce. Ensure that your tires are properly inflated and have even tread wear. If the tires are out of balance, it can also contribute to bouncing.    Alignment Issues: Improper wheel alignment can result in uneven tire wear and cause your vehicle to bounce. If the wheels are not aligned properly, it can affect how the tires interact with the road surface.   Damaged Springs: The springs in your vehicle’s suspension system help absorb shocks. If these springs are damaged or worn out, it can lead to bouncing.    Worn Bushings or Bearings: Bushings and bearings ... read more
