Suspension & Steering Photo 3If something about your ride is not feeling right, you are most likely in need of a Maple Grove suspension & steering alignment service that knows how to get your vehicle back on the road in no time. Any time something happens to your suspension or steering, driving can become hazardous. By having the issue addressed quickly and regular inspection of these elements, you can keep your vehicle running for as long as possible. At Accurate Auto, your safety and you getting full use of your vehicle is among our top concerns.

Suspension System

If your ride has become jarring and very hard, then the springs in your suspension system have probably failed. If the shocks fail, then there is excessive up and down movement of the car when encountering a bump in the road. Failed shocks could also make it difficult to steer and that could make it feel as if the vehicle is pulling to one side.

No matter the problem, we are a Maple Grove suspension & steering alignment service with an experienced staff that can help you be safe on the road. While it is important to address a suspension or steering problem as soon as possible, it is also important to have the suspension system checked every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

Steering

Steering goes hand-in-hand with your chassis. The chassis is the bottom of the car’s frame, which includes the gear that makes the car move. This means it includes the engine, driveshaft, transmission, suspension, and differential. It is not the metal body of the car, which is a common misconception among vehicle owners.

When you experience difficulty in steering, feel vibration in the steering wheel, or feel anything that is not normal, then it is time to get it checked out. Having the issue addressed immediately can reduce the cost of repairing it. We’ll check for leaks in the power steering column, flush the power steering, and perform the needed repairs. We also check for proper tension in belts.

We recommend that you do have regular driveshaft inspections to ensure the C/V joints, universal joints and differential are properly working. We also recommend that power steering belts are replaced every 24,000 miles or every two years. If the belts break, the repairs could be more extensive and expensive. The fluid should also be checked every 3,000 miles or 3 months.
