Your suspension is the system that connects your wheels to your vehicle, controls your handling, and delivers a good ride as you cruise around. Your suspension is critical for proper steering, stopping, and stability.
Your suspension system must absorb the impact of every pothole and bump to maintain control. The suspension has many joints and pivot points that allow your wheels to move up-and-down over these bumps and to turn as you steer. These parts include ball joints, tie rod ends, the pitman, idler arms, and the control arm bushing.
A suspension part can become bent from hitting a rock, curb, or a big pothole. When a joint or other part is worn the other suspension parts may no longer securely fit together. Handling and steering may have a loose feel and may be accompanied by strange noises. This can also contribute to uneven tire wear from the excess bouncing. A loose joint can stress other suspension components, which can initiate faster wear.
When your service advisor inspects your vehicle they can look for signs of suspension problems like uneven tire wear, excessive exertion in suspension components, and other visible damage. They can replace the worn or damaged parts and restore safe handling.
