How Steering & Suspension keep your ride comfortable and safe
From making sure your vehicle responds correctly when you turn the wheel to giving you a smooth ride, the steering and suspension system is responsible for how your car handles. It’s a large part of keeping your daily drive safe and comfortable. The steering and suspension system typically contain shocks or struts, ball joints, control arms, tie rods, and sway bar links. A proper alignment of your steering is also necessary for your vehicle to track down the road straight as well as for even tire wear. Like every system in your car, the steering and suspension should be regularly inspected and maintained to get the longest life possible out of your vehicle and keep you safe on the road.
