Suspension and Steering

Steering & Suspension Services

A properly working steering and suspension system can enhance the comfort of your vehicle’s ride and is essential for keeping safe control of your car. At Advanced Auto Diagnostics, we have all the steering and suspension services you need.

Replacing your car’s struts and shocks when required is vital to your safety as well as reducing the cost of operating your car through reduced tire wear, better gas mileage and lower maintenance costs on other suspension and steering components. Catching a suspension or steering problem early can mean the difference between simple maintenance and a costly repair. If you notice any problems in the way your car steers or rides, contact our mechanic shop at 305-418-8748.

During a routine inspection of your car’s suspension system, we will:

  • Inspect shocks regularly for leaks, cracks and other signs of damage.
  • Watch for vehicle bounce and sway when making turns
  • Check for uneven tire wear 

Power Steering

Power steering is standard on most modern vehicles, making steering much easier. A pump pressurizes the power steering fluid that assists you when turning the steering wheel. Components, such as the hoses that channel the power steering fluid, can develop leaks over time so it’s a good idea to have your steering system inspected regularly.

Power steering fluid cleans, cools and lubricates the power steering system. The power steering fluid breaks down as the years go by and collects unwanted moisture. Replacing the old fluid according to vehicle manufacturers suggested intervals will help keep your power steering system running its best. Our power steering system flush service can remove all the old contaminated fluid from your power steering system, and then refill with new fluid according to vehicle specifications.

  • Remove old power steering fluid from the system.
  • Flush & clean system.
  • Refill with new power steering fluid according to vehicle specifications.

Worn Down Steering or Suspension Parts

If your vehicle has worn down steering or suspension parts, this can lead to excessive wear on your tires and overall poor alignment. The steering and suspension systems in your vehicle are complex, and problems with one of these systems may also negatively affect other systems of your vehicle.

By replacing worn parts, you can restore your vehicle’s performance. This is why we recommend an inspection of your steering and suspension parts each time we perform an alignment.

Parts that may need to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Ball Joint
  • Bushing
  • Sway Bar Link
  • Center Link
  • Idler Arms/Pitman Arms
  • Rack and Pinion Unit
  • Tie Rod Ends/Sleeve
  • CV Joints/Boot
  • CV Axle Half Shaft
  • Shock Absorber
  • Air Shock or spring
  • MacPherson Struts/Cartridge

I am 55 years old and not a fan of the “online” world but I felt compelled to put a review for these guys. I must thank David and the staff behind him for their honesty and integrity. They saved me around $3,000 in unnecessary repairs that were suggested by my dealer!!! I ran these guys through 2 honesty tests and they passed with flying colors. Good people still exist !!!!
