Steering & Suspension System
Your vehicle's steering and suspension system is responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. The steering and suspension system also helps drivers to keep control of their vehicles at all times. The suspension system converts the forward energy created by bumps in the road into vertical energy that travels up the vehicle frame. This road force is dampened by suspension system components like coil springs and shock absorbers. All suspension system components will weaken over time through stress applied during normal driving conditions, though the individual components comprising each suspension system may vary. Erratic driving and off-road driving can similarly wear down suspension components more quickly. We can identify and fix any steering and suspension issues you have, no matter what kind of driving you do. The steering and suspension components will be inspected by our staff in order to determine if your service will be a minor adjustment or replacement.
All of the following are reasons to get your steering system repaired: shaky or unsteady steering, feeling like the car is off-center or stiff steering. Excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps, or feeling like you have intermittent control while driving or braking, are all reasons to get your suspension system inspected. Suspension problems may cause uneven tire wear, but this can also be a sign of alignment issues. Did you hit a pothole recently? The damage that potholes can cause to steering and suspension components can be costly to fix. If the suspension components are worn, it will reduce the stability of the vehicle and the driver's control. Suspension issues that go untreated have the potential to increase the wear on other suspension components, which may result in more extensive repairs down the road.
