Steering & Suspension Repair
Your vehicle is a sophisticated piece of machinery with lots of moving parts and systems. When these systems or parts are failing to work properly, your vehicle will let you know. Some of the signs that you need to make and appoint for steering or suspension repair include:
- Your vehicle is pulling to the left or right while you are driving
- You are suddenly feeling every little bump in the road
- A corner of your vehicle is sitting lower than the others
- A bouncier ride than normal
- You are having difficulty steering your vehicle
- A shaking or off-center steering wheel.
If you are experiencing any of these or other possible suspension issues, bring your car to the experts at Herold Family Automotive and Tire.
Shock Absorbers and Struts
Your shocks and struts are an important element of your steering and suspension system. While they don’t have specific replacement intervals, they will wear out and need to be replaced. Sometimes they may last up to 60,000 miles, but if they are leaking or damaged they will need to be replaced sooner. If your vehicle is diving or dipping when you are braking or if it feels like it is exhibiting body roll movement, it may be a sign that it is time to replace your shock absorbers.
When your wheels are out of alignment it affects your suspension system as well as causes uneven tire wear. Today’s wheel alignments require expert technicians and advanced alignment tools and machinery. Herold Family Automotive and Tire has both.
