The steering and suspension system on your vehicle is responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. The steering and suspension system also helps drivers remain in control of their vehicles at all times and absorb energy from bumps and road impact. Shaky, off-center, and stiff steering are all signs for needing a steering system repaired, while excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving and braking are cause for a suspension system inspection. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a potential suspension problem. Potholes can also cause significant damage to steering and suspension components and worn suspension components will reduce the stability of the vehicle and the control of the driver.
