Your vehicle’s steering and suspension system makes riding comfortable and ensures good driving performance. These two important systems also help you to remain in control when you drive, which means they’re crucial for safety, too. A suspension system converts forward energy created by dips and bumps in the road into vertical energy that travels upward into the frame of your vehicle. Specific components like coil springs and shock absorbers help to absorb the impact from these otherwise unpleasant road forces. While certain components in suspension systems may vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle, all of them will eventually become weakened over time.
If you enjoy off-road driving or you have erratic driving habits, this can cause your suspension system components to wear down at a much faster rate. No matter where or how you drive, C & C Automotive has the latest equipment to help identify and correct all of your steering and suspension-related issues. Our experienced staff is fully trained to inspect your vehicle’s suspension and steering system components so we can determine the problem and make the correct recommendations for repair or replacement.
Steering and Suspension Repair
If you notice that your car feels shaky, unsteady, or is driving off-center, you could need a steering system repair. If your vehicle feels like it’s bouncing or swaying a lot whenever you drive over bumps, or it feels like you lose control when driving and braking, have your suspension system inspected right away. One common cause for alarm is if you notice uneven tire wear, although this issue is more frequently caused by improper wheel alignment. Driving over potholes or rugged roadways can also contribute to issues with your car’s steering and suspension system. When these components wear out, it can make your vehicle unstable and more difficult to control.
All of the components of your suspension system are combined into one working unit. When an issue goes ignored, it can cause the wear and tear on your entire system to worsen. Eventually, you may end up with much more expensive repairs later on. Don’t ignore any of the symptoms above if you’re concerned about your steering or suspension. Contact the pros at C & C Automotive right away so you can schedule an inspection.
