Steering and Suspension

The suspension system, including your shock absorbers or struts, coil springs and linkage, helps to support your vehicle’s weight and keep your tires in contact with the road.

Beyond providing a comfortable and enjoyable ride, these components ensure your vehicle’s handling is secure. A properly maintained steering wheel and suspension system keep you in control of your vehicle. Our factory-trained experts will make sure your vehicle’s systems are functioning properly.

If you notice any of the following while driving, it’s a sign you may need maintenance soon:

– Excessive bouncing
– Loss of tire contact with the road
– Excessive or uneven tire wear
– A decrease in your vehicle’s handling or braking
– Vibration or noise
– Fluid leaks in your vehicle’s shocks
– Dents, holes or damage to any of your vehicle’s shock components
