Vehicle Steering & Suspension Service and Repair in Kitchener Waterloo
Your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems are key components that allow you to drive comfortably and maneuver efficiently. When your vehicle’s power steering is working properly, you are in more control of the vehicle, allowing your maneuvers to be more responsive, hence a safer ride. The suspension system is quite absorbent to any bumps, potholes, as well as sudden stops. If these systems are properly maintained, your vehicle will allow you to enjoy a much smoother ride as oppose to if they weren’t.
The steering system consists of the steering wheel, steering column, track rods, tie rods, and steering arm. The suspension system is made up of the chassis or frame, springs or struts, arms and axles, and sway or torsion bars. These essential components are worked hard and impacted often when driving so it is important to maintain them and have the systems feel and drive smoothly.
Signs that a component in one of these systems needs to be serviced or replaced:
- Difficult/loose steering
- Steering wheel vibrates/shakes
- Unordinary noises when making a turn
- Vehicle pulling to one side
- Bouncing over bumps
- Dips when committing any sudden stops
If you suspect your vehicle is showing any one of these signs, bring it to AutoSmarto where one of our qualified technicians will inspect these systems’ key components for you.
