Diagnosing steering and suspension problems

At the first sign of a problem with steering, bring your vehicle into our experts. We will work to determine the exact cause of the issue and get you back on the road safely.

Below are signs of a faulty steering and suspension system:

  • Bouncing after driving over bumps or potholes
  • Difficulty steering
  • Entire ride in vehicle is shaky
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Vehicle nose dives while braking
  • Vehicle pulls to one side
  • Visible leak underneath car

Problems with the steering and suspension system can often stem from failing shocks and struts or linkage parts and joints. The shocks and struts absorb motion after your car hits a bump and can often start leaking over time with normal use or can be damaged due to impact with debris or curbs. The ball joints that connect the linkage parts in your vehicle’s steering system wear out over time and often become unresponsive.
