Extending the Life of Your Vehicle’s Steering & Suspension Systems

Steering & Suspension Repair Service

Avoid surprise steering and suspension failures or repairs with regular alignment checks.

An uncomfortable suspension or play in the steering is the last thing you want from your vehicle. To extend the life of your vehicle and minimize costly repairs, Pickering’s recommends regularly inspecting your steering and suspension.

Steering & Suspension Service

Pickering’s Auto Services’ ASE Certified expert Technicians are continually trained to help you maintain these systems to ensure the reliability and safety of your vehicle.

To ensure that your vehicles’ systems are in the best possible working condition, this service may include:

  • Identifying signs of wear or damage to all shocks, struts, and springs
  • Replacing worn, damaged, or missing suspension parts that are not performing correctly
  • Aligning wheels because parts may change wheel angles
  • Control arms, ball joints, C.V. axles, tie rods, steering pump and gears, rack and pinion
  • Flushing power steering components
  • Checking for choppy or uneven tire wear

Importance of Steering & Suspension Service

These correctly operating systems are necessary to ensure a safe and dependable vehicle. Regular services can help eliminate premature tire wear and save you hundreds of dollars.

  • Even under normal driving habits, shocks, struts, springs and steering components can weaken.
  • Eventually, this can lead to reduced vehicle stability and driver control.
  • Costly replacement of tires can ultimately result from uneven or choppy wear.
  • Overtime, having your vehicle out of alignment can cause a decrease in fuel efficiency.
  • Saggy struts/shocks can overload the brake system which can lead to premature pad replacement.

Frequency of Steering & Suspension Service & Warning Signs

To avoid costly repairs and replacements, Pickering’s recommends having your steering and suspension inspected and your alignment checked annually. To ensure your safety in your vehicle, we recommend you have these systems checked immediately if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Excessive noise when driving over bumps
  • Rough, shaky, or bumpy ride
  • Exaggerated bouncing, wandering or pulling
  • Crooked steering wheel or reduced control on turns
  • Loud whining coming from the power steering pump or squealing belts
  • Loud knocking or banging noises coming from the undercarriage
  • Uneven wearing on tires
  • Low power steering fluid
  • Collision or excessive force with a curb or pothole
