Know the Signs of Bad Steering and Suspension

With all the potholes and road works in the area, effective steering and suspension systems are what will keep your car in good condition on Brisbane’s roads. They ensure stability and absorb shock while you drive, providing a smoother experience, even on uneven roads. Steering and suspension also assists with your braking, helping to keep you safe on the road. With all these important features, it is imperative that you know the warning signs and common problems that may affect these systems.

Problems and Warning Signs for Your Suspension

If you have driven smoothly over potholes and road works around Brisbane then you have experienced the positive effects of suspension. If you don’t experience any problems with your suspension you should have it checked every 20,000kms. If you think you have a suspension problem, here are a few common ones to look out for:

  • Worn out shock absorbers
  • Sagging or broken springs
  • Worn out ball joints

Look out for suspension warning signs including:

  • Excessive bouncing, especially on uneven roads
  • Poor handling
  • Car not level when parked

Know Your Steering Problems and Warning Signs

The benefits of steering are obvious, because steering is the main way you keep your car on the road. Your steering works hand in hand with suspension and should be checked every 20,000kms or every 12 months. If you’ve let your service slip, here are a few common steering problems you might encounter:

  • Misaligned wheels
  • Damaged pads or rotors
  • Uneven wear of your tires

And here are the warning signs to look out for:
