Steering and Suspension

Steering & Suspension Service in Steger, New Lenox, and Schererville

A faulty or worn suspension system can be one of the most dangerous problems in any car. The suspension system is responsible for keeping you in control of your vehicle on the road. It absorbs bumps, potholes, and other road hazards while keeping your vehicle stable around corners.

Car suspension

Steering components like tie rods ensure your car drives in a straight line. Like any part of a car, these components will eventually wear down over time and lose their effectiveness. Years of driving, rough road conditions, and harsh weather can lead to worn-out control arm bushings, blown struts, damaged steering end links, and many other issues. 

Some suspension and steering issues can result in an instant impact on driving dynamics and comfort in the vehicle, while other issues can be less noticeable until they reach full failure. Keeping an eye (and ear) on your steering and suspension components is a good way to catch problems early on, but having your suspension inspected consistently is a surefire way to decrease the odds of failure and dangerous issues. 

Some common suspension symptoms include:

  • Vehicle pulling to one side
  • Rubbing, grinding, or squeaking over speedbumps and potholes
  • Vehicle leans to one side
  • Rough/uncomfortable ride
  • Difficulty controlling vehicle
