Steering and Suspension

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 Target Auto Repair, we have all the steering and suspension services you need.

Replacing your car’s struts and shocks when required is vitally important to your safety and reduces the cost of operating your car through reduced tire wear, better gas mileage, and lower maintenance costs on other suspension and steering components. If you notice any problems in the way your car steers or rides, contact Target Auto Repair and schedule an appointment.

During an inspection of your car, we will:

  • Inspect shocks for leaks, cracks and other signs of damage
  • Watch for vehicle bounce and sway when making turns
  • Check for uneven tire wear (also an indicator of worn shocks and struts)

Power steering makes 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 manufacturer’s suggested intervals will help keep your power steering system running its best. Our power steering flush service can remove all the old contaminated fluid from your power steering system, and then refill with new fluid according to vehicle specifications.
