What's Inside Your Steering and Suspension System?

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.

Warning Signs of Bad Steering and Suspension

Your SAS system is made of many different parts, most of which will eventually wear out and need replacement. Even though mileage is usually the indicator for having your vehicle checked, there are certain signs that you can look for as to understand when you should have your steering and suspension evaluated. If your car nose dives when braking, that's a sign your suspension needs checked. Same goes for when you experience excessive bouncing while going over bumps. Other symptoms can be related to uneven tire wear or bad spring coils, which make your car lean heavily to one side. If your steering wheel is harder to turn than usual or you notice premature wear on your tires, then this may be a sign of bad tie rods. A shaking or vibrating steering wheel is another warning sign. Contact us at Meineke #353 in Jersey City, NJ to learn more or to schedule an inspection.

Repairing You SAS System

It is very important to have your vehicle inspected at first signs of trouble and to have your SAS system serviced in a timely manner, because while some small issues may be more of an inconvenience when driving, others can actually cause dangerous conditions. Our process always starts with a thorough evaluation of your steering and suspension, which includes your car's front and rear end, all coil springs, shocks and struts, all chassis parts and wheel bearings, the differential, and many more system components. Based on our technicians' findings, we will present you with a detailed report and repair plan, giving you all options such as replacing or repairing parts. We'll make our expert recommendations, but you'll always have full control over the repair process.
