SAS stands for Steering and Suspension system, which is an integral part of your vehicle chassis. SAS is mainly responsible for the balance and stability of your car, as well as the smoothness of your ride. The suspension system has multiple components, mainly hydraulics, and springs and struts designed to absorb and dampen the shock of the road. It does so by absorbing the motion of the wheels and granting additional stability. The steering system is comprised of conversion devices, levers, and joints, which are all connected under a complex chain that helps you guide your vehicle on the road and also control it with minimal effort. Together, the steering and suspension systems are what keep your vehicle's wheels firmly on the ground and keep your vehicle from veering to the side. What's more, SAS can affect not only the smoothness of your ride, but it can also impact other systems such as wheel alignment.
A smooth and safe ride is greatly dependent on your SAS system, so be sure to have it checked if you notice signs of a troubled steering and suspension system. These signs can vary, from excessive noise coming from under your car when driving over bumps, to experiencing too much bounciness or sways. Other common symptoms may include vibrating or a crooked steering wheel, as well as premature and uneven wear of your vehicle's tires. All in all, if your overall ride is shaky, bumpy and harsh, or if you're finding your car to be particularly hard to handle and control, then be sure to contact our experts at Meineke #246 in Glen Burnie, MD and schedule an inspection.
