Steering and Suspension System

The steering and suspension system on your vehicle is responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. The steering and suspension system also helps drivers remain in control of their vehicles at all times. The suspension system converts forward energy created by bumps in the road into vertical energy that travels up into the vehicle frame.


Suspension system components, like coil springs and shock absorbers, help to dampen the impact of this road force. While the individual components comprising each suspension system may vary, all suspension system components will weaken over time through stress applied during normal driving conditions. Similarly, off-road driving and erratic driving can wear down suspension components more quickly. Regardless of your driving preferences, we have the necessary equipment to identify and correct any issue plaguing your steering and suspension system. Our staff is trained to inspect the steering and suspension components in order to determine whether your service will entail a minor adjustment or a replacement.


Benefits of Steering and Suspension System

Shaky, unsteady, off-center, and stiff steering are all cause for getting a steering system repaired, while excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving and braking are cause for a suspension system inspection. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a suspension problem, though this may also point to alignment issues. Have you hit a pothole recently? Potholes can cause damage to steering and suspension components. Worn suspension components will reduce the stability of the vehicle and the control of the driver. Because suspension system components combine into one working unit, suspension issues that go untreated have the potential to increase the wear on other suspension components, which may result in more extensive repairs down the road. If you experience any of the above symptoms, contact us online or by phone today.

Different components of the suspension system

Frame: This is the main part of the suspension. It is the part that supports the weight of the engine and body. 

Suspension system: This refers to the setup that absorbs shocks, supports the weight of the vehicle, and keeps the tyres planted on the ground. 

Steering system: The steering system allows the driver to turn the vehicle. The system allows light force from the steering wheel to turn the vehicle. 

Tyres and wheels: The wheels turn around to move the vehicle and the tyres are the rubber ring that covers the wheel's rims. The tyres are designed to keep a solid grip on the road. 

Struts: Struts have two different purposes: dampen and provide structural support. 

Shocks: Shocks work to reduce bouncing, roll and sway, and brake dive and acceleration squat. They are oil pumps that control the movement of suspensions. If you notice that there is oil leaking, come to Wheels Of Wanneroo to make sure that the shocks are repaired properly.


Axles: Axles are rods that support the weight of the vehicle and turn the wheels of the vehicle. Signs that your axles need service include a loud clunk noise when changing gears, vibrations, and your vehicle is not able to move forward or backward.

Control arms: Control arms work to make the motion of the wheels in line with the body of the car. Every 145,000 to 160,000 KMs, the control arms can wear out, or hitting a pothole can make the control arms bend. If you notice your tyres wear improperly, take your vehicle to Wheels Of Wanneroo to make sure your control arms are in good condition.
