Your vehicle's steering and suspension is responsible for providing optimal ride comfort and handling performance.
Because normal road conditions can cause the shocks, struts, and springs of your suspension system to weaken over time, these worn suspension parts may reduce vehicle stability and driver control. They may also accelerate tire wear.
Most manufacturers recommend a steering and suspension system check every 50,000 mi (80,000 km). These components do more than just provide a comfortable and enjoyable ride - they work together to help keep your car or truck handling securely.
A properly maintained steering wheel and system keeps you in control of your vehicle while the suspension system, including your shock absorbers or struts, coil springs and linkage, help support your vehicle's weight and help keep your tires in contact with the road for better traction.
