Auto Repair Mint Hill; Steering and Suspension

Your steering and suspension systems play a major role in your vehicles braking and handling, not to mention safety.  How your vehicle feels on the road and how you are able to avoid an emergency situation are directly related to the condition of the steering and suspension systems.

This time of year as the weather changes we experiences, ice and snow along with freezing rain.  It is imperative that your steering and suspension systems are checked regularly and in optimal condition.  Add to the list a poorly maintained steering and suspension system and you may be headed for trouble during inclement weather.  Worn or damaged suspension system components can cause wandering, pulling, erratic steering, excessive wear and tear, leaning, bottoming out, longer braking distance or poor ride and handling and this is the short list.

Under normal conditions, struts and shocks wear out gradually and you may not notice incremental losses in the ride quality, braking handling and control.  Some sighs that your vehicle may have worn shocks include excessive bouncing, rocking back and forth, drifting, nose-diving while braking, swaying or cupping wear on the tires.

If you think your car may be experiencing any of these conditions, please stop by and Ken can have one of the guys perform an inspection on your vehicle.
