Suspension & Steering

Suspension and steering are among the most important and most underappreciated aspects of a car, and proper maintenance of these systems is critical to keeping your vehicle performing as it should. Although technically separate items, a car’s suspension and steering systems are closely related, and lack of maintenance on one can affect the other. This is because suspension does far more than simply provide a smooth ride on bumpy roads. One of the primary purposes of your car’s suspension is to keep all four wheels properly in contact with the road while cornering, accelerating, and braking. And if its suspension is not properly maintained, then a car can become less responsive, slower, and harder to stop.
