Steering and suspension

Car Steering Repair Services, Raleigh

Keep your car on the right track

The steering and suspension system in your vehicle helps you keep your car in control while driving. This system allows the wheels to move independently and make your ride smooth, stable, and as comfortable as possible. If your steering and suspension system isn’t working properly, then you need to contact an auto repair shop immediately. Bring your vehicle to Quail Corners Auto Care in Raleigh for a high-quality wheel alignment at the very first sign of trouble to avoid big losses. We’ll get the job done right and make sure your vehicle is operating at its full potential.


The steering system is what helps you control your car. It’s vital that the parts of this system are properly aligned so that you’re in absolute control of the direction your vehicle is headed. If there is an issue with your steering system, you may notice that your vehicle is pulling to the left or the right while driving. You may also notice that you need to put more effort in while turning. While these may be signs of an issue with another part of your vehicle, like your tires, it’s important to get a professional diagnosis as soon as you notice an issue.


The suspension system is specifically designed to absorb and dissipate the energy produced while driving on rough, bumpy roads. Even freshly paved roads have minor imperfections, and without a suspension system, that energy would be transferred directly to the frame of your car, and you would feel every tiny bump. The suspension system allows your tires to stay in constant contact with the road so the frame of your vehicle can remain undisturbed while driving. In other words, the suspension system is responsible for providing you with the smoothest ride possible. You will notice bumpier rides if this system isn’t functioning properly, and it can cause significant damage to your wheels, tires, body, and other parts of your vehicle if you ignore the issue.

Here are some early symptoms that could mean there is an issue with your steering and suspension system:

  • Hard turning
  • Wandering wheels
  • Noise while driving
  • Vehicle bouncing
  • Leakage of fuel from seals

If you notice any of these issues, it’s extremely important that you contact a professional mechanic right away. At Quail Corners Auto Care, we will start by doing a full analysis of your vehicle to determine exactly what the issue is. Our professional auto technicians will properly inspect your vehicle to detect all major and minor problems, including any issues with your steering and suspension.

  • Alignment problems
