Steering & Suspension Services in Foxboro

The steering and suspension systems of a car are important for safety reasons as well as to enhance the comfort level of vehicle. Both systems directly relate to each other.

There are tow basic types of steering system, standard mechanical steering and rack and pinion steering. The standard mechanical steering can be either power assisted or non-power. Rack and pinion is almost always power assisted although there are rare cases where it is not.

Standard mechanical steering uses a series of links and arms to ensure both wheels turn in the same direction at the same time. It hasn't changed much in all the years it's been used and is quite simple.

The pivots are ball and socket joints that do wear out over time and will require replacement. Loose steering parts will make a car difficult to handle and will cause the front tires to wear out permanently. That is why it is important to have the steering checked at least once a year. A great time to do it is when you are in for an oil change. At Don's Auto Service we check the steering and suspension while the car is up on the hoist and waiting for the oil to drain out.

There are many forces and angles that have to be acted upon and maintained. If you notice any problems in the way your car steers or rides or you feel any body or steering wheel vibrations, you should have it checked out as soon as possible with Don's Auto Service.
