Steering & Suspension Repair
Your automobile is a complex piece of machinery with plenty of moving parts and systems. When these parts or systems are not working properly, your car will let you know. Some of the common signs that you need steering and suspension service or repair include:
- While you’re driving, your vehicle is pulling to the right or left

- A corner of your vehicle is sitting lower in comparison to the others
- Bouncier ride than usual
- You are experiencing difficulties when steering your vehicle
- A shaking or off-center steering wheel
Shock and Struts
The shocks and struts are a crucial element of your car’s steering and suspension system. While they don’t necessarily have specific replacement intervals, eventually they’ll wear out and have to be replaced. In some cases, they might last up to 100,000 miles, however, if they’re damaged or leaking, they’ll need to be replaced sooner. If your vehicle is dipping or diving when you are braking or if it feels very shaky on the road, it could be a sign that it’s time to replace your shocks and struts.
When your wheels are out of alignment, it affects your suspension system and also causes uneven tire wear. Modern wheel alignments need advanced alignment tools and expert technicians.
