Steering & Suspension Service


Your car's suspension system keeps you riding smoothly over bumps, dips, and turns, while also ensuring you maintain control of the vehicle through all of these obstacles. Our experts can fix steering and suspension system issues that involve shock and strut repair, as well as front and rear suspension services.

What’s Included In Steering & Suspension Service?

When you bring your vehicle to Brakes Plus with steering or suspension issues, our technicians will start with a free alignment check, which allows them to inspect all parts related to your steering and suspension. If anything is found to be damaged or worn out, we'll provide you with an estimate before performing any work.

If any major components of your suspension need to be replaced, or if you notice irregular wear patterns on your tires, it's important to have your car aligned at the same time. This relatively inexpensive procedure could end up saving you a great deal in terms of longer tire life, better fuel economy, and safer handling.

Symptoms Of Steering Issues

  • Abnormal noise – If you hear noise when turning the wheel or going over bumps, it may indicate a problem with your steering system.

  • Poor steering control – When your vehicle becomes difficult to steer, steering wheel shakes, or the steering wheel is off-center, these are definite signs your steering system needs inspecting.

Symptoms Of Suspension Issues

  • Excessive bouncing – If your vehicle bounces more than usual after driving over potholes, or speed bumps, you should have your suspension checked out.

  • Loss of control during sudden stops – Vehicles with poor suspension will often skid, swerve, or veer out of control when braking suddenly.

  • Uneven tire wear – If your tires are wearing unevenly, despite regular tire rotations, it may be an indicator of your suspension failing to hold your car evenly.

What Are The Benefits Of Proper Vehicle Suspension?

  • Improved overall vehicle performance

  • Consistent handling and braking

  • Increased ability for tires to stay in contact with the road

  • Decreased rate of tire wear
