Steering & Suspension Repair in Franklin MA

Your vehicle’s steering & suspension are what keeps your vehicle from wandering all over the place. It also gives you the comfortable ride you’ve come to expect from your Euro car and gives you the ability to take sharp curves without a lot of sway. Advanced European Repair in Franklin, MA, can maintain and repair the steering & suspension so you stay safe.

Signs of Steering & Suspension Issues

In addition to being comfortable on the road, you also need to be safe. While the steering helps you navigate the roads and the suspension gives you a comfortable ride, both also play a large role in keeping you safe. When components in either system malfunction, they can cause damage to other components, including the tires, and put you at a higher risk for an accident.

Some signs of steering & suspension problems include:

  • Vibrations in the steering wheel could be a sign of unbalanced wheels, especially at speeds between 55 and 75 mph. It could also signify issues with the suspension, worn tires, or misalignment.
  • If your vehicle pulls to one side, you may have issues with the suspension, or the vehicle may need an alignment.
  • Uneven tire wear signifies misalignment if the tread scallops or one side of the tire is worn. If just the center of the tread is worn, the tires have too much air pressure. If both edges of the tread are worn, the tires don’t have enough air pressure.
  • When you’re struggling to turn the steering wheel, you may have an alignment issue, low power steering fluid, an issue with the rack or gearbox, or worn-out steering and suspension components.
  • A whining noise when you turn the steering wheel tells you the power steering pump is either low on fluid or is failing. Squeaks, banging, and creaks could signify something worn or broken in the steering or suspension.
  • If you notice you’re bouncing all over the place when you hit a bump, you have a suspension issue – usually shocks, struts, or springs.

Steering & Suspension Services at Advanced European Repair in Franklin, MA

Because your vehicle’s steering & suspension keep you safe on the road, it’s a good idea to keep them maintained. At Advanced European Repair, we inspect the steering & suspension when you bring your vehicle in for preventative maintenance. Our auto technicians look for worn or broken parts, power steering leaks, and oil leaks from the shocks and struts.

Additional services related to the steering & suspension systems include:

  • Align the wheels for tire longevity, safe handling, and optimized fuel efficiency.
  • Rack and pinion replacement and power steering gearbox replacement. Your vehicle has one or the other, and both are wear-and-tear items, though they typically last well over 100,000 miles. These components can also develop leaks.
  • Power steering pumps and high and low-pressure power steering lines often develop leaks. The pump bearings can malfunction.
  • Shocks and struts wear out over time, making your ride bumpy and uncomfortable.
  • Tie rod ends wear out and cause alignment issues.
  • Suspension bushings wear out, causing a rough ride and, sometimes, a lot of banging noise. It is common for bushings to wear out.
  • Control arms also wear out and need replacement.

Though rare, springs, as well as sway bars, can wear out or break. At AER, we can replace any suspension and steering part that is worn or broken.
