Steering & Suspension

A vehicle’s suspension system, including the shocks and struts, affects how the vehicles handles, steers and rides.

STEERING AND SUSPENSION SERVICES

Balance, stability and smoothness – they’re what ensure a comfortable ride for you and your passengers, and your car’s steering and suspension are what make this possible. Steering and suspension are responsible for keeping your wheels firmly intact with the ground, and a major player in keeping your car from veering to one side or the road.

If your vehicle’s steering and suspension isn’t working properly, you’re in for a bumpy ride – literally. At the first sign of trouble, bring your car in for steering and suspension services. Symptoms of a faltering steering and suspension system include:

  • Noise when driving over bumps
  • Vehicle bouncing
  • Hard turning
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Wandering wheels

SHOCKS & STRUTS

Shocks absorb bumps and uneven areas on the road, keeping the driver in the car and the other components from experiencing too much disruption from potholes, speed bumps and other obstructions. Struts are a key part of the suspension system, mounting the coil spring which helps determine vehicle alignment and the height of the vehicle. This important system can also impact stopping distance, which could mean the difference between a safe stop and an automobile accident.
