Steering & Suspension

Understand Your Steering and Suspension Systems

Your vehicle's suspension and steering are actually parts of the chassis and are two very important systems for the stability and control of your car. The suspension system is in charge of supporting the weight of your car, helping maintain tire contact, and therefore absorbing or dampening the shock. Simultaneously, the steering system is the mechanism that allows you to direct and guide your vehicle. The suspension is comprised of three fundamental components: springs, dampers, and anti-sway bars which help absorb the motion of the wheels, control unwanted spring motion, and provide additional stability. It is therefore essential that your steering and suspension work properly and are carefully maintained so that you can have full control of your vehicle and also enjoy an "un-bumpy" ride.

Common Signs of Steering and Suspension Problems

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 #581 in Westchester, IL, we offer a complete vehicle inspection to assess the steering and suspension system of your car and draft a detailed repair plan.

What To Expect From SAS Services?

When you take your car in for steering and suspension service, expect nothing less than thoroughness through and through. The SAS system is made of hundreds of parts and components that affect each other's performance, so it is critical that your steering and suspension are exhaustively inspected and evaluated. This includes all shocks, springs and struts, the sway bar link and bushings, all bearings and ball joints, tire rod ends, alignment parts, steering cooler and fluid, and more. To find out more about what our SAS evaluation includes, schedule an appointment now at Meineke #581 in Westchester, IL and we'll walk you through every step of the process.

Replacing or Repairing SAS Systems

Depending on the findings from your vehicle's evaluation, you may have different options when it comes to the repair process. Some parts of the steering and suspension system can be fixed, while others may need replacing. Bushings, for instance, play an important role in your car's suspension but they're made of flexible material such as rubber, which means they need to be replaced if they are worn or damaged. Coil springs on the other hand, are made with wide gap coils and they can be serviced, as can the steering gearbox or loose lug nuts. It's great to have options, but it's also very important to choose the proper repair plan, one that will keep your car and yourself safe. Contact us at Meineke #581 in Westchester, IL and we'll help you understand more about what can be fixed and what needs replacing in your SAS system.
