Katy Steering & Suspension Repair Services
Dillon’s Automotive has an experienced staff of certified technicians and the latest equipment to handle your steering and suspension repairs. Similar to the function of your tires, your suspension controls the smoothness and accuracy of your car’s ride and performance. The suspension takes the friction created from the tire to the road and maximizes it by controlling weight transfer during the braking process along with acceleration and cornering.
Every time you hit a bump in the road with your car or truck you engage the vehicle’s suspension and minimize the amount of vertical acceleration affected. These vehicle dynamics particularly affect two key components, the vehicle’s ride and handling. The suspension directly affects your vehicle’s ability to corner and keep the passengers from the pushing outward from the vehicle’s center.
Some steering and suspension problems can be diagnosed just from paying attention to the feel and ride of your car or truck. Other steering and suspension problems can be more subtle, which is why Dillon’s inspects, maintains, and repairs all suspension and steering components, from shocks and struts to control arms, steering gears, power steering pump, and lines.
Below are just a few of the essential parts that make up the suspension that we service:
- Ball joints
- Sway bar links
- Center links
- Idler arms/pitman arms
- Rack and pinion units
- Tie rod ends/sleeves
- Cv joints/boots
- Shock absorbers
- Coil springs
Worn steering, suspension, and drive line components can cause noise, vibration, premature tire wear, and misalignment. That’s why Dillon’s Automotive performs a complete steering and suspension system inspection with every alignment. Checking even the most subtle alignment problems is critical in the lifespan of your steering and suspension.
We always recommend having your vehicle maintained by a full service professional who can catch problems before they occur. Normal wear and tear will make steering and suspension components fail, which is why it is important to listen and pay attention to the sounds your car makes, instead of it adding to the cost of repairs or worst, leaving you stranded.
