Learn More About Your Steering and Suspension System

The steering system allows the driver to control the direction of the vehicle, while the suspension system helps to keep the car comfortable and stable on the road. Together, these two systems make it possible for your car to be driven safely at high speeds.

If not properly maintained, they can also be a source of problems. For example, a steering system that is not properly aligned can cause the vehicle to veer off course, while a suspension system that is not functioning correctly can cause the car to bounce around on the road. It’s important to make sure that the steering and suspension system of your vehicle is in good condition so that you don’t have to deal with any of these issues down the road.

Our ASE-certified technicians will inspect your vehicle and identify any potential issues.

Here are the inclusions of our SAS inspection:

Check the tires

If we suspect your steering or suspension system is not working properly, we will check the condition of your tires. If your tires are worn out or have uneven tread, they can cause your car to pull to one side or the other. Additionally, low tire pressure can also cause steering and suspension issues.

Check the alignment

If your tires are in good condition but your vehicle is still experiencing steering or suspension problems, the next step is to check the alignment of your wheels. If your wheels are not properly aligned, it can cause your car to pull to one side or the other.

Check the shocks and struts

Shocks and struts help to absorb bumps in the road, so if they are worn out, they will not be able to do their job properly. 

Check the ball joints

Ball joints connect the control arms of your car to the wheels. They allow for up and down movement of the wheels as well as side-to-side movement. If the ball joints are worn out, it can cause your car to shake or vibrate when you turn the steering wheel.

Check for leaks

Another potential cause of steering and suspension problems is leaks in the hydraulic system. The hydraulic system is what provides power assist to the steering system. If there are leaks in this system, it can result in a loss of power assist, making it difficult to turn the steering wheel.
