Steering + Suspension Repairs
Fast Fact: When the driving gets rough, you probably have a steering and/or suspension problem!
Your car or truck’s steering and suspension system is what gives you, your passengers, and you vehicle a smooth & safe ride. When it’s not working right, the road becomes a bumpy and dangerous place.
Suspension & Steering Issues: Best and Worst Cases
At best, a troublesome suspension and/or steering issue will cause you and your passengers will be jostled about, and you’ll likely get stains from spilled drinks throughout your interior.
At worst, the very structural integrity of your entire vehicle is undermined and your car is no longer road-worthy.
The problem, however, is that even the best-case scenarios will eventually become worst-case scenarios for your vehicle’s suspension & steering system. That’s because the friction that comes from a troublesome suspension creates an unsustainable torsion throughout your car’s drivetrain and powertrain.
How Your Vehicle’s Suspension System Works:
The suspension system of your vehicle works hard to maximizes friction between its tires and the road to provide you with:
• Steering stability
• Optimal handling
• Operational safety
• A smooth ride for yourself, your passengers, and/or your cargo
The key components of the suspension system are the coil springs and shock absorbers. These two components work together so that they can absorb vibrations and friction caused by uneven road surfaces and potholes.
Maintaining the car or truck’s suspension system so that it’s in good working order is crucial for the safe handling of your vehicle and optimal comfort while driving. It also helps to maintain your tires by reducing their tire wear.
When your car or truck’s suspension system is not functioning correctly, it can cause a chain reaction where other parts of your vehicle’s systems become compromised. This can include uneven wear & tear on your brakes and tires, sheared tie rods, dead differentials, transmission problems, and bent control arms.
