Steering & Suspension Services in Las Vegas, NV
Understand Your Steering and Suspension Systems
Your vehicle's suspension and steering are actually parts of the chassis and are two very important systems for the stability and control of your car. The suspension system is in charge of supporting the weight of your car, helping maintain tire contact, and therefore absorbing or dampening the shock. Simultaneously, the steering system is the mechanism that allows you to direct and guide your vehicle. The suspension is comprised of three fundamental components: springs, dampers, and anti-sway bars which help absorb the motion of the wheels, control unwanted spring motion, and provide additional stability. It is therefore essential that your steering and suspension work properly and are carefully maintained so that you can have full control of your vehicle and also enjoy an "un-bumpy" ride.
Symptoms Of A Bad SAS System
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. At Meineke #2711 in Las Vegas, NV, we conduct thorough assessments so be sure to bring your car in as soon as you experience issues such as noise coming from under your car (whether it's clunking, grinding, or rattling), excessive sway or lean when you're turning, or vibration in your steering wheel.

Steps in Solving Your SAS Problems
Evaluation is always the first step in any vehicle repair process, especially when it comes to steering and suspension. Since your car's SAS systems are comprised of hundreds of different parts and elements, it is important to have a thorough inspection in order to determine the proper cause of the symptoms. This inspection should include the front and rear end, the shocks, struts and coil springs, the wheel bearings and chassis parts, as well as the power steering and power steering fluid.
