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.
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.

Therefore, there are many benefits of having your SAS serviced - one of the most important being better brake performance.
