The chances are that your steering and suspension are the last things on your mind when you are driving your vehicle, but these systems are just as important as any other system in your car. Steering and suspension are what allow you to handle your vehicle and give you control when you are behind the wheel. When these systems start to malfunction it can affect other components of your vehicle as well as put you in a potentially dangerous situation. LP & Sons Auto Care wants to keep you in control of your vehicle and enjoying the ride with our steering and suspension repair services.
Steering and Suspension Parts
Every model does not necessarily have the same steering and suspension components, but these systems all include some of these parts:
- Shock Absorbers
- Ball Joints
- Idler Arm
- Pitman Arm
- Center Link
- Steering Gear Box
- Tie Road End
Anytime one of these parts wears out, loosens, or becomes damaged it compromises your vehicles’ stability. We recommend that you have your steering and suspensions components checked regularly for any wear or damage from the road.
