Steering and Suspension repair and services
When you are on the road, the steering and suspension system of your vehicle is what helps you stay in control. The entire weight of your vehicle is carried by your shocks and steering system. Additionally, the steering system assists in providing a safer and smoother ride and keeps your tires on the road while driving.
You should inspect your steering and suspension system at least once a year or more, depending on your driving conditions. When you notice the first warning signs of a faulty steering and suspension system, you should pay a visit to our auto repair shop.

Steering and Suspension are two separate components of your vehicle that work together to keep your vehicle under control. These components are responsible for stable road control, drivability, and handling. Over time, these parts may have what we call “wear”, which means what it sounds like, parts wear out. Many parts in steering and suspension must move, similar to elbow joints in your body. If the joints are dried out, you may hear creaking and popping. Wear can also cause “slop” in your steering. Steering and suspension part failures are serious and can lead to other issues, like wearing tires unevenly or worse, causing loss of control of the vehicle. Front end inspections can pinpoint any current or upcoming issues as part of a preventive maintenance plan.

Our expert technicians will also inspect your wheel balance and tire to see whether the problems are tire-related or not.
