Steering and Suspension Repairs in Murfreesboro, TN
Distinctive Auto Repair has a team of experienced and ASE-certified auto technicians and state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and equipment to tackle your steering and suspension repairs. The main function of your car's suspension is to control the accuracy and smoothness of your car's performance and ride. The suspension takes the friction created from the tire to the road and amplifies it by balancing weight transfer during the braking process along with cornering and acceleration.
Each time you drive over a bump on the road with your vehicle, you engage the suspension system of your vehicle and minimize the amount of vertical acceleration affected. Generally, these vehicle dynamics affect 2 key components, the handling, and ride of a vehicle. The suspension directly affects your vehicle’s ability to corner and keep the passengers from the pushing outward from the vehicle’s center.
Some steering and suspension issues can be diagnosed simply from paying attention to the rid and feel of your car, truck, or SUV. Other issues can be a bit more subtle, which is why Distinctive Auto Repair inspects, diagnoses, maintains, and repairs all steering and suspension components, from steering gears, to power steering pump, lines, control arms, and shocks and struts.
