Steering and Suspension Services


Your steering and suspension system gives you a smooth, stable ride and ensures proper ground clearance. Depending on the suspension system, springs and shocks or struts work together to absorb road impact and prevent bouncing and swaying. Because shocks and struts literally keep your wheels in contact with the road, replacement approximately every 50,000 miles improves handling and braking distance.

Get help from the pros at Free Service Tire & Auto Centers. Depending on your steering and suspension system, our expert technicians will check and adjust either the control arms, sway bar, tie rods, bushings and ball joints, or the struts, rack and pinion units, and CV joints, as well as your wheel alignment to make sure all components are within manufacturer specifications. If necessary, we will provide an itemized written estimate for any required or suggested repair work.

The condition of your steering and suspension system has a big impact on wheel alignment. Proper wheel alignment keeps your vehicle tracking in a straight line. When the wheels are out of alignment, your car or truck can pull to one side or the other, affecting safety and handling. Minor alignment issues cause premature tire wear, but you won’t necessarily notice a difference in handling. That’s why it’s important to check the alignment when you buy new tires and when your vehicle is in for service.
