Signs of Steering and Suspension Issues

Your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems are critical for a smooth and safe driving experience. Recognizing common signs of steering and suspension issues can help you address problems before they escalate. Here are key symptoms to watch out for:


Feeling vibrations in the steering wheel or throughout the vehicle could indicate issues with the suspension components, such as worn-out shocks or imbalanced tires.

Uneven Tire Wear

Uneven wear on your tires, where certain areas show more wear than others, may suggest misaligned wheels or problems with the suspension system. Regularly check your tire treads for abnormalities.

Difficulty Steering

If you experience difficulty steering, whether it's stiffness, a wandering feeling, or a pulling to one side, it could signal problems with the steering components or an issue with the alignment.

Strange Noises

Unusual noises, such as clunking, squeaking, or knocking sounds when turning the wheel or driving over bumps, may indicate issues with suspension components, like worn-out bushings or ball joints.

Bouncing or Dipping

Experiencing excessive bouncing, dipping, or swaying when driving over bumps or uneven surfaces may suggest problems with shocks, struts, or other suspension components.

Leaning During Turns

If your vehicle leans excessively to one side during turns, it could be a sign of worn-out or damaged suspension components, affecting your vehicle's stability.

Look for signs such as vibrations, uneven tire wear, difficulty steering, strange noises, bouncing or dipping, leaning during turns, and fluid leaks. If you notice any of these symptoms, it's advisable to seek professional inspection and repair.

Steering wheel vibrations could be caused by imbalanced tires, worn-out shocks, or other issues within the suspension system. A thorough inspection by our technicians can pinpoint the root cause and provide the necessary repairs.

Uneven tire wear can result from misaligned wheels, worn-out suspension components, or improper tire inflation. Addressing this issue promptly is essential to prevent further damage to both your tires and suspension system.

Regular inspections are crucial for preventive maintenance. We recommend including steering and suspension checks in your routine vehicle maintenance schedule or whenever you notice any unusual symptoms.

While it may be possible to drive, it's not advisable. Ignoring steering and suspension problems can lead to further damage and compromise safety. We recommend scheduling a professional inspection as soon as possible.

Clunking sounds during steering could indicate issues with components like worn-out bushings, ball joints, or tie rods. A detailed inspection will help identify the specific cause and ensure timely repairs.


What Our Clients Say

On a recommendation, I had Jeff and his team do custom exhaust work on a car that has a lot of sentimental value to me, and the results are incredible. They took the time to talk me through options and helped me arrive at the best plan, and then they knocked it out of the park! Highly recommended!

These guys are the absolute best of the best. Not only did they do amazing work on my 2017 Jeep Patriot but they spent about an hour on the phone with my warranty company to help get my repair bill down. The alignment I got was also very satisfactory which I am very picky about. Thanks so much guys!

Chrome Auto is by far the best auto shop I’ve been too. Customer service is top notch. Jeff, the owner, is both knowledgeable and ethical. After being conned out of thousands of dollars from multiple car shops around my area, I found Jeff. It’s 45 minutes from my location but worth the drive as Jeff has earned my trust. He and his technicians do business honestly. Give them a shot you won’t be disappointed.
