There are two different areas to consider when it comes to steering: first, the power-assist, and second, the actual parts that steers the vehicle.
The power steering pump provides boost to help you steer easily. The important thing to keep in mind is that these pumps will eventually wear out and holes will start to leak, but you can postpone that by having a power steering system serviced. Our technicians will drain the old fluid and replace it with fresh one, which will help remove water and contaminants that can corrode power steering parts. Your steering parts can also be lubed to help them operate more smoothly.
It’s a good idea to take care of problems early on, before they start to stress other components and cause a chain reaction of damage.
Your car’s suspension system is what connects your wheels to the vehicle. Not only does it help deliver a smooth ride, it is also essential to your vehicle’s steering, stopping and stability. Car’s suspension systems contain a lot of joints and pivot points that connect to one another, and these wear out over time. When certain components of your automobile’s suspension are worn, it stresses the other suspension components, so they wear out faster than they should. Even tires that should last years can wear out in a couple of months because of a poor suspension component.
When we look at your vehicle, we look at signs of a possible suspension problem, replace the damaged components (for example, your springs) and restore your handling.
