Have you noticed your car starting to pull or swerve to a certain side while you’re driving? Does your drive seem much bumpier than usual? What you’re feeling and seeing may be a problem with the steering and suspension. Much like the function of your tires, your suspension controls the smoothness and accuracy of your car’s ride and performance. Your steering, suspension, and drivetrain systems are important to ensure a smooth and safe ride every time.
Suspension and steering are both integral parts of an automobile and should never be ignored when they start to show signs of wear. It is time to give the professionals at Stewart Auto Repair a call if your car or truck is experiencing any of these symptoms:
Normal wear and tear will make steering and suspension components fail, which is why it is important to listen and pay attention to the sounds your car makes. Worn steering and suspension components can cause noise, vibrations, premature tire wear, and misalignment. If these issues are not addressed in a timely manner, they can lead to the suspension or steering system breaking down completely, which results in costly repairs. More importantly, it can lead to improper or poor steering and potentially a dangerous driving situation.
Many steering and suspension problems can be diagnosed simply from paying close attention to the feel and ride of your vehicle. Unfortunately, some steering and suspension problems can be much more subtle. This is the reason we inspect, maintain, and repair all suspension and steering components, from shocks and struts to control arms, steering gears, power steering pump, and lines. Gary and his team understand that checking even the most subtle alignment problems is extremely important in maintaining the safety and optimal operation of your vehicle’s steering and suspension.
