    Sad Suspension issues

    My friend's van is sagging near the rear passenger side. Tires look fine. Is this a sign of a suspension problem? I am urging her to get it checked before it gets worse. Any ideas?

    I would bring it to a mechanic. These vans do sag from the weight of the conversion and water, so shocks and springs may need to be replaced.

    Right that is what I say too. The previous owner of my van had shocks replaced. She was going regularly over some rough roads.

    I think she is tired of expenses but I encouraged her to meet me for lunch across from a repair shop. I groom their dogs and I asked if they would give her a free inspection. They did. Definitely springs/shock issue. She said it's a few hundred dollars not thousands so she is cool with it and they gave her a 15% discount for her first business. Nice people.

    On our RV which is personal not grooming. Hitting the right hole can cause early damage to suspension. Awesome that business offered them a good price.

    People are encouraged to go around me if caught behind me when I do my sort of rural route. We have some big potholes in that there community. They are always complaining to the county but nothing happens. I go REALLY slow as in a couple areas you have to drive over at least the side of some of them.
