The steering and suspension systems are important for your safety, as well as comfort. The suspension system essentially connects the vehicle to the wheels. It keeps the wheels on the road so they can provide traction and smooth out the bumps in the road. The steering wheel is connected to the suspension system via the steering column and a series of pivoted joints. This allows the wheels to move up and down to adjust to the road surface without changing the steering angle. It also helps you turn your wheels as needed. Both systems require precise adjustments. Worn parts can make the car less stable, reduce handling, or speed up the wear of other components—which is why it’s important to schedule an appointment for suspension repair as soon as you notice problems.
We also recommend keeping up with regular steering and suspension service. Even if you aren’t noticing any obvious problems, it’s best to replace worn parts proactively. Not only may this save you from breaking down, but it’s more cost-effective than waiting until something needs a full repair. You should be able to find the manufacturer recommendations on steering and suspension service in your owner’s manual, but it’s generally a good idea to have it inspected every 50,000 miles or as part of your NH state inspection. If you’ve recently been in an accident that involved the front end of your car, we recommend an inspection to make sure neither system has suffered damage.
How To Tell If You Need Help
Since most suspension and steering systems aren’t visible, it’s difficult for drivers to see when parts are looking worn. Here are a few signs you may need steering or suspension repair:
- Your car “nose dives” forward
- Bottoming out when driving over bumps
- Bouncing repeatedly over bumps in the road
- Difficulty turning your steering wheel
- Loose steering
- The car pulls to one side while driving
- Vibration in the steering wheel
If you’ve noticed any of the above, or it’s just been a while since you had either system inspected, schedule an appointment at our Milford location. Our skilled technicians will quickly diagnose and repair the issue. And, if you need transportation in the meantime, we also offer a free shuttle service and low-cost loaner cars.
