Like your car’s brake system, the steering and suspension systems are key to your car’s safety. Together, they largely determine your car’s ride and handling. Douglas Automotive Repair Inc recommends having your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems checked regularly, at least once a year and usually with a wheel alignment.
“Over time, steering and suspension components wear out and require replacement. The suspension system maintains the relationship between the wheels and the frame or unibody, and interacts with the steering system to provide vehicle control. Regular checks are critical to the safety of your car.
Uneven tire wear
Noise and vibration while cornering
Loss of control
Several factors that affect steering and suspension wear include driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the frequency of regular maintenance such as chassis lubrication and wheel alignment.
