The primary function of your car's suspension and steering system is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.
Worn or loose components affect the suspension system's ability to control motion and alignment angles, resulting in a deterioration of vehicle handling and stability, and accelerated tire wear. The main components of the suspension system are:
> Control arms
> Ball joints
> Springs (coil or leaf)
> Shock absorbers
If you feel a pulling to one side while driving or feel like your suspension is performing the way it should, bring it to one of our locations in Fountain Valley, Mission Viejo or Rancho Santa Margarita and let one of our technicians diagnose and repair the problem for you.
