Steering and Suspension
It’s essential to maintain your vehicle’s steering and suspension components to ensure a high level of comfort and safety on the road
When power steering is working optimally, you can respond to unexpected obstacles while driving. The suspension system absorbs bumps on the road as well as the impact of sudden stops, keeping the ride safe and smooth and preventing the wear of other parts, including brakes.
Failure due to a defective part can have serious consequences.
Worn shocks and struts can allow excessive body roll when turning, which affects the vehicle’s ability to safely steer around objects on the road.
Worn shocks and struts can allow too much weight transfer to the front wheels during braking, which could result in a measurable increase in stopping distance.
Worn shocks and struts can allow excessive roll, sway and bounce while the vehicle is in motion, which reduces the driver’s control.
Suspension components wear out gradually and may not be noticed until the system fails.
So, it’s important to have them checked periodically, especially if your vehicle has been driven for 80,000 km or more.
