A Possible Answer to Why Your Car Drives Wonky

A Possible Answer to Why Your Car Drives Wonky

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension system helps you stay in control on the road. It also keeps your drive smooth and comfortable. If your steering and suspension system isn’t functioning properly, you’re at high risk to lose control of your vehicle.  

Before we talk about diagnosing the problem, we want to first explain the general mechanics behind your vehicle’s exterior.

How Does the System Work?

When your car drives over a bump in the road, your suspension system converts forward energy into vertical energy that travels up into the vehicle frame. The suspension system components, such as the coil springs and shock absorbers, help dampen the impact.

While the individual components comprising each suspension system may vary, all suspension system components weaken over time during normal driving conditions. Off-roading, erratic driving, and driving on roughly paved back roads can wear down suspension components more quickly.

How Can You Tell Your System Needs Repair?

If your vehicle drives shaky, unsteady, off-center, or with stiff steering, you know it’s time for a steering checkup and repair.

If you experience excessive bouncing or swaying when you drive over bumps and potholes, you probably need a suspension system inspection. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a suspension problem, though this may also point to alignment issues.

Potholes can cause damage to both steering and suspension components. Worn suspension components reduce the stability of the vehicle and the control of the driver. Each system component affects the entire system, so if one unit demonstrates excessive wear, it could harm the rest of the system. If you get repairs completed when you first notice a problem, you can potentially save more extensive repairs in the future.

If you experience any of the above symptoms, contact us today and we’d be happy to diagnose your vehicle and fix the problem!
