COVID-19: Contact your local Meineke for information on enhanced safety measures
Your steering and suspension system, also known as SAS, supports your vehicle, absorbs shocks and bumps, and allows your car to turn in response to your steering input. The system is very complex and comprised of hundreds of different parts, especially considering that there are many different types of suspension designs. However, there are also certain major subsystems, such as the wheels and tires, the springs, the shock absorbers and struts, as well as the linkages, joints and hydraulics. They all play a major part in keeping your car on the road, offering a smooth ride, and easy control and handling of your vehicle. They are also all prone to failure, which is why it's important to have your SAS checked regularly, especially if you live in areas with poorly maintained roads or rugged terrain.
A smooth and safe ride is greatly dependent on your SAS system, so be sure to have it checked if you notice signs of a troubled steering and suspension system. These signs can vary, from excessive noise coming from under your car when driving over bumps, to experiencing too much bounciness or sways. Other common symptoms may include vibrating or a crooked steering wheel, as well as premature and uneven wear of your vehicle's tires. All in all, if your overall ride is shaky, bumpy and harsh, or if you're finding your car to be particularly hard to handle and control, then be sure to contact our experts at Meineke #1593 in Peoria, AZ and schedule an inspection.
It is very important to have your vehicle inspected at first signs of trouble and to have your SAS system serviced in a timely manner, because while some small issues may be more of an inconvenience when driving, others can actually cause dangerous conditions. Our process always starts with a thorough evaluation of your steering and suspension, which includes your car's front and rear end, all coil springs, shocks and struts, all chassis parts and wheel bearings, the differential, and many more system components. Based on our technicians' findings, we will present you with a detailed report and repair plan, giving you all options such as replacing or repairing parts. We'll make our expert recommendations, but you'll always have full control over the repair process.
Sometimes, the issues you are experiencing with your SAS system may seem more of an inconvenience than a problem, but the truth is that these symptoms can quickly escalate and cause dangerous situations. Even if they don't, problems with steering and suspension can lead to other issues, which will end up costing you more when it's time to service your car. Therefore, there are many benefits of having your SAS serviced - one of the most important being better brake performance. A properly working steering and suspension also prevents uneven and premature tire wear and helps you better handle your vehicle which leads to a safer ride. Last but not least, a great suspension makes for a more comfortable ride, so you can enjoy driving again.
