Steering and Suspension Explained

With so many more visible car problems and issues to address when servicing a vehicle, it can sometimes be easy to forget about steering and suspension systems. However, these are critical parts of your car's chassis and maintaining them is highly important for both a safe and smooth ride. The steering side is made up of the steering wheel, gears, linkages, and other components which help direct and control the motion of your car. The suspension side is aimed at supporting your vehicle's weight and absorbing the shock caused by the friction between the wheels and the road. The steering and suspension work together to help keep you in control of your car, facilitate the handling of the vehicle, and offer a smooth ride. They also impact other systems and parts such as your tires, and can cause misalignment or premature wornness.

When Do I Need Steering and Suspension Service?

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 #2684 in Las Vegas, NV and schedule an inspection.

How SAS Evaluation & Repair Works

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 SAS Systems

Depending on the findings from your vehicle's evaluation, you may have different options when it comes to the repair process. Some parts of the steering and suspension system can be fixed, while others may need replacing. Bushings, for instance, play an important role in your car's suspension but they're made of flexible material such as rubber, which means they need to be replaced if they are worn or damaged. Coil springs on the other hand, are made with wide gap coils and they can be serviced, as can the steering gearbox or loose lug nuts. It's great to have options, but it's also very important to choose the proper repair plan, one that will keep your car and yourself safe. Contact us at Meineke #2684 in Las Vegas, NV and we'll help you understand more about what can be fixed and what needs replacing in your SAS system.
