OUR ASE-CERTIFIED MECHANICS WILL GET YOUR VEHICLE’S HANDLING ISSUES UNDER CONTROL
A key part of vehicle safety is actually being able to control your vehicle. Steering and suspension systems work together to make sure your tires stay on the road. When your power steering is having issues it can make the steering wheel difficult to move, and bad suspension issues can make the whole car feel impossible to steer correctly. Steering and suspension systems are always a part of every safety inspection.
HOW TO TELL IF YOUR STEERING OR SUSPENSION IS DAMAGED:
A bad suspension leaves visible signs if you know where to look, but the change in your vehicle’s handling from a power steering issue would probably catch your attention first. Working hard to turn a steering wheel means less time to react in a risky driving situation. If you notice that your car sometimes has a bounce, squeak or sway while driving, make sure to set up an appointment to get your power steering and suspension inspected for possible issues.
STEERING & SUSPENSION DAMAGE SYMPTOMS WHILE DRIVING
- Noise when turning the steering wheel.
- Your car leans forward, backward, or toward one side as you brake.
- Your vehicle pulls or drifts, especially around turns.
- Change in steering response.
VISIBLE SIGNS OF DAMAGED SUSPENSION OR STEERING
- One corner of your vehicle sits lower than the others.
- Your tire treads develop a specific, uneven wear pattern called “cupping.”
- You see obvious wear on your shocks or struts.
- Low or dirty power steering fluid.
- Squeaking, especially when turning or braking.
