Is It Time to Check the Alignment of Your Steering and Suspension Components?

Is your car’s steering or suspension system giving you trouble? Have you noticed your vehicle veering to one side when driving straight ahead? Is the ride bumpy and uncomfortable? If so, it's time to check the alignment of your steering and suspension components.

At Sartorial Auto Repairs in Santa Rosa, CA, we understand that a car’s steering and suspension system is complex. That's why we are here to help! We provide top-notch service for all types of auto repair needs.

Your car’s suspension system is made up of several components that work together to keep you safe on the road and maintain smooth ride quality. The main components of your vehicle’s suspension system include shock absorbers, springs, struts, control arms, tie rods and stabilizer bars. These parts are responsible for keeping tires in contact with the road surface as well as absorbing shocks from uneven terrain or bumps along the way. They also help keep your car aligned properly with the steering wheel.

If any of these components become misaligned or worn out due to age or wear-and-tear, it will affect how your vehicle handles on the road making it difficult to steer straight ahead and can cause an uncomfortable ride experience due to excess vibrations and rattles from loose parts.

In order for a technician at Sartorial Auto Repairs to accurately assess whether your steering and/or suspension components need attention, they must first inspect them visually by checking for cracks or wear in any parts like bushings or ball joints etc., then perform a test drive with a technician in order to get an idea of what is happening while driving on different kinds of roads (smooth highway vs bumpy backroads). Once this has been completed they may recommend some repairs such as replacing worn out parts like shocks/struts/springs etc., tightening loose bolts/nuts that may be causing rattles/vibrations etc., or tightening up adjusters in order to align wheels correctly with respect to each other so that tracking is true again on all four wheels.

It's important not only for safety reasons but also if you plan on taking long trips as misalignment can cause increased tire wear over time which translates into more money spent at tire shops! It can also lead towards premature failure of other related components such as bearings which could possibly lead towards catastrophic failure resulting in costly repairs down the line if left unchecked for too long.

So if you're having problems with your car veering off course while driving straight ahead, experiencing excess vibrations while going over bumps/uneven terrain etc., don't wait until it becomes more serious before getting checked out by a professional at Sartorial Auto Repairs!
