Your vehicle's steering and suspension system is responsible for the easy handling of your car and the smoothness of your ride. Even if you're driving on greatly maintained roads, your vehicle still sustains shocks from the wheels' motion, weakening your suspension system over time. It is essential to repair or replace worn components of your suspension system as they can affect the stability and control of your car. This also impacts the wear and tear of your tires, as poorly-maintained suspension can cause your tires to wear prematurely. The steering system is crucial when it comes to handling and guiding your vehicle, so regularly checking it and properly maintaining it is of utmost importance. It's what keeps your car from veering to the side of the road.
Although in most cases mileage is a pretty good indicator of when to have your car checked, with regard to steering and suspension it is important to look for signs that indicate your SAS system is faltering. The sooner you get your vehicle inspected and fixed, the easier it will be. At Meineke #2221 in Gilroy, CA, we conduct thorough assessments so be sure to bring your car in as soon as you experience issues such as noise coming from under your car (whether it's clunking, grinding, or rattling), excessive sway or lean when you're turning, or vibration in your steering wheel.
