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.
A faulty SAS system can add to alignment issues and greatly impact your braking distance, making for a very bumpy ride - literally. Therefore, if you feel like your car is hard to steer or handle, or if you feel a vibration in your steering wheel or excessive play, then those are signs that your steering and suspension systems need to be checked. Other warning signs include abnormal sway or lean in turns, excessive noise when driving over bumps, and uneven wear of your tires. As soon as you notice any of these symptoms, bring your car in for a check. You can learn more by contacting our experts at Meineke #712 in Hershey, PA.
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.
Like with any other services that we provide, our steering and suspension repair is based on a detailed plan that gives you options. Some parts can be fixed and worked on, while others, such as shocks and struts, need replacement from the get-go, but our expert and experienced technicians will always walk you through the process and explain the ins and outs of each option. They will also recommend any additional services your vehicle may need based on the initial evaluation or on the work that's being planned. These usually refer to tire rotation or wheel alignment (which goes hand in hand with SAS services), as proper alignment increases the life of your tires, improves the car's mileage and makes it easier to handle the vehicle.
