STEERING & SUSPENSION

Slider

The steering and suspension of your vehicle is critical for safe handling and a smooth ride. These two systems work in tandem to effectively provide direction, stability and traction for your vehicle when you’re on the road.

Normal wear and tear from potholes, bumps or uneven terrain can take its toll on any vehicle. Shocks, struts, control arms, ball joints, stabilizer bars, tie rods and the rest of these two systems wear down and weaken over time. It’s important to notice how your vehicle responds to the environment it is riding on.

JW Auto Centers recommends regular inspection of all steering and suspension components to ensure proper functionality and a smooth ride regardless of where you’re driving.

When To Service Steering and Suspension Components

  • Most manufacturers suggested a full inspection of the steering and suspension systems every 80,000 kilometers
  • An additional annual checkup of these components can be performed for extra peace of mind
  • In conjunction with your vehicle’s braking system maintenance or repairs
  • Anytime you notice fluid leaks around where you park your vehicle
  • Anytime you feel irregular control or operation of your steering or suspension system

How Do I Know If My Steering or Suspension Systems Aren't Functioning Properly?

  • If your vehicle is excessively bumpy when riding on rough terrain
  • Unusual noise on rough terrain, bumps or potholes
  • Vehicle vibration regardless of speed
  • Car drifting in either direction when attempting to drive in a straight line
  • Crooked steering wheel when driving straight
  • Any form of uneven tire wear
  • Unexpected noise related to steering your vehicle
  • Any sense of the vehicle “feeling loose” or swaying while driving
