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.
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
Diagnosis is very important when it comes to solving steering and suspension problems, which is why it's essential to take your car in at the first signs of trouble. Here, at Meineke #558 in Mount Prospect, IL, we offer a complete vehicle inspection to assess the steering and suspension system of your car and draft a detailed repair plan.
Because the steering and suspension systems are highly complex and made out of many parts, all of which could be either worn or damaged, it is highly important to have your vehicle inspected by expert mechanics and technicians. There are many reasons why your SAS system may be failing, so determining the root problem is the most important step in steering and suspension repair services. Our thorough evaluation includes the inspection of all suspension parts, shocks, struts and coils, as well as steering components, such as tie rods, lug nuts, and power steering pumps. We'll prepare a detailed findings report and a repair plan to highlight the issues that take priority, as some of the SAS problems can lead to dangerous driving conditions.
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.
