Suspension & Steering


The primary function of your cars suspension and steering systems is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.


Steering Systems

Worn or loose components affect the ability to control the toe angle, and may result in a loss of directional stability and accelerated tire wear. The main components of car suspension and steeringa Conventional system are:

  • 1. Steering Gear Box

  • 2. Center Link

  • 3. Pitman Arm

  • 4. Idler Arm

  • 5. Tie Rods

The main components of a Rack and Pinion steering system are:

  • 6. Rack and Pinion Assembly

  • 7. Bellows Boots

  • 8. Tie Rods

Suspension System

Worn or loose components affect the suspension systems ability to control motion and alignment angles, resulting in a deterioration of vehicle handling and stability, and accelerated tire wear. The main components of the suspension system are:

  • 9. Control Arms

  • 10. Ball Joints

  • 11. Springs (Coil or Leaf)

  • 12. Shock Absorbers

  • 13. Struts





It's easy to take your suspension system for granted, but normal wear and tear can affect your handling and safety. A worn suspension part starts a chain reaction that stresses other parts and causes them Ė and your tires Ė to wear prematurely. Let us help you take care of your suspension.




Schedule A Suspension Inspection At Danís Auto Service


Todayís Taberg car care article focuses on your suspension system. After many years and tens of thousands of miles, your car suspension system components do wear out, but how long that takes depends a lot on how you drive. As you can imagine, if most of your driving is on smooth Taberg highways, your shock absorbers will last a lot longer than if you do most of your driving on bumpy roads or hauling heavy loads.

Schedule A Suspension Inspection At Dan's Auto ServiceIn addition to just wearing out, Danís Auto Service customers need to know that suspension components can be damaged in an accident or by a hard impact Ė like a pothole, hitting a curb or a rock in the road.


Because the life span of shocks can vary so widely, your car manufacturer and Danís Auto Service recommend periodic inspections. During an inspection, your Taberg service technician will check for worn, broken or missing parts.


Signs that shocks or struts are wearing out: The tires may have a cupped wear pattern. This is from the shocks bouncing unevenly as you drive around Taberg. You may notice a floaty or drifting sensation when cornering. If the front of your car dives excessively when stopping, or rocks back and forth after you stopped, your shocks may be worn out. And if they are leaking fluid, itís definitely time to replace them.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, come into Danís Auto Service for a suspension inspection.
 Same if youíve been in an accident that involved one of your wheels. Worn or broken shocks can cause premature wear or failure on other car suspension parts such as ball joints and other steering components as well. If your suspension actually fails, it could lead to a serious accident, so let us take care of your suspension components at Danís Auto Service.


When you replace your shocks, itís usually a good idea to replace all four at the same time. Thatíll give you more even handling. Talk with your service advisor at Danís Auto Service because you donít want a big difference between the performance of your shocks from wheel to wheel, and replacing all may be the safest bet.


Danís Auto Service Car Care News and Information: Power Steering Maintenance

Did you know that the first cars were steered with a tiller? They also took a lot of muscle to turn Ė especially at low speeds. Francis W. Davis developed hydraulic power steering which has been enjoyed by generations of New York drivers who can steer with one finger while sipping coffee or even with a knee while they stir in a packet of sugar. (We donít recommend either of these dangerous practices.)Power Steering Repair service Taberg NY

With hydraulics, fluid is pressurized by a pump which actuates a hydraulic cylinder that does the heavy lifting, so to speak. Some of these pumps are powered by an electric motor but most pumps are powered by the serpentine belt.

Many Taberg drivers take effortless, smooth steering for granted and fail to realize that this vital system canít be ignored. If you are experiencing troubles with your power steering such as loud whining, extra play in the wheel, uneven tire wear, inconsistent power assist or if you find that it has become more difficult to turn the wheel, it is time to have your modern horseless carriage looked at by your considerate Danís Auto Service service specialist.

Power steering fluid is the lifeblood of your steering system. Danís Auto Service recommends that the fluid be replaced on schedule for optimum performance and to protect the parts from rust and corrosion. Itís best to check power steering fluid at every oil change.

Power steering service includes a thorough cleaning of the system and inspection of all the parts. The steering system and the suspension system work in tandem Ė an alignment service at Danís Auto Service in Taberg also includes an inspection of steering components.

In addition to protecting costly parts, properly maintaining your power steering system is necessary for keeping everyone safe Ė you, your passengers, and other Taberg drivers on the road.
