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 faulty SAS system can add to alignment issues and greatly impact your braking distance, making for a very bumpy ride - literally. Therefore, if you feel like your car is hard to steer or handle, or if you feel a vibration in your steering wheel or excessive play, then those are signs that your steering and suspension systems need to be checked. Other warning signs include abnormal sway or lean in turns, excessive noise when driving over bumps, and uneven wear of your tires. As soon as you notice any of these symptoms, bring your car in for a check. You can learn more by contacting our experts at Meineke #1867 in Bloomington, IN.
Having your steering and suspension properly serviced can save you a lot of money down the road as it could help eliminate uneven and premature tire wear, as well as alignment issues. Our certified technicians will conduct a thorough evaluation of your vehicle, including inspection of all struts, shocks and springs to determine any signs of wear or damage. Based on the results of the evaluation, we will prepare a detailed repair plan for you and go over all options, such as replacing or repairing parts, so that you can approve the entire process beforehand. When certain parts of the steering and suspension are replaced, existing wheel angles may change, so we always recommend wheel alignment with any SAS repair service.
Replacing or repairing certain parts of your steering and suspension can have an impact on other systems as well, which is why it's important to have a comprehensive view of your vehicle's repair needs. It's also important to have a one-stop shop for all those needs. Here, at Meineke #1867 in Bloomington, IN, we offer a wide range of services, including tire alignment and tire rotation, which complement SAS system repairs. Tire alignment is a crucial step, as it adjusts the suspension of your vehicle, actually aligning the system that connects your wheels to the rest of the car.
