Your steering and suspension system, also known as SAS, supports your vehicle, absorbs shocks and bumps, and allows your car to turn in response to your steering input. The system is very complex and comprised of hundreds of different parts, especially considering that there are many different types of suspension designs. However, there are also certain major subsystems, such as the wheels and tires, the springs, the shock absorbers and struts, as well as the linkages, joints and hydraulics. They all play a major part in keeping your car on the road, offering a smooth ride, and easy control and handling of your vehicle. They are also all prone to failure, which is why it's important to have your SAS checked regularly, especially if you live in areas with poorly maintained roads or rugged terrain.
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.
