Steering & Suspension

When it comes to your safety while driving, the steering & suspension components of your vehicle are equally as important as your brakes. Most of us will never see all the important parts that provide the smooth ride and stable handling enjoyed in our car, SUV and/or pick-up.  Here is a quick list of the major components that make up the steering and suspension of your vehicle:

 

  • Tires
  • Shocks
  • Struts
  • Ball Joints
  • Anti-roll bars
  • Control arms
  • Bushings

 

How do you recognize a potential problem with your steering & suspension?
  • Listen to your vehicle….Do you suddenly start to hear “unusual” knocking, clunking, our pounding noises while driving over railroad tracks or bumps?
  • Changes in handling….Does the vehicle pull to the right or left,or  does your vehicle seem to lean as you corner, or does your vehicle seem to bounce when traveling over bumps?
  • Use your eyes.  Is one corner of your vehicle  lower than the others?  

With any of these changes in your vehicle handling tell your service advisor at your next oil change. While the vehicle is up in the air they can inspect your steering and suspension components for possible breakage, wear, or other signs of failure.
