STEERING AND SUSPENSION
If your vehicle has worn down steering or suspension parts, this can lead to excessive wear on your tires and overall poor alignment. The steering and suspension systems in your vehicle are complex, and problems with one of these systems may also negatively affect other systems of your vehicle. By replacing worn parts, you can restore your vehicle’s performance. This is why we recommend an inspection of your steering and suspension parts each time we perform an alignment.

Their primary function is to keep the tire in contact with the road.” Your shocks and struts are integral parts of your vehicle that need some TLC like any other major component of your car.
