With so many more visible car problems and issues to address when servicing a vehicle, it can sometimes be easy to forget about steering and suspension systems. However, these are critical parts of your car's chassis and maintaining them is highly important for both a safe and smooth ride. The steering side is made up of the steering wheel, gears, linkages, and other components which help direct and control the motion of your car. The suspension side is aimed at supporting your vehicle's weight and absorbing the shock caused by the friction between the wheels and the road. The steering and suspension work together to help keep you in control of your car, facilitate the handling of the vehicle, and offer a smooth ride. They also impact other systems and parts such as your tires, and can cause misalignment or premature wornness.
A bumpy ride is the most common sign of a vehicle having SAS issues. If your steering and suspension system is faltering, then you'll be able to tell by these symptoms:
- your vehicle is hard to turn
- your car bounces too much
- you hear a noise when driving over bumps in the road
- your tires present uneven wear
