Maryland Steering and Suspension Repair

If you are experiencing issues with how your car handles on the road, it’s possible that your vehicle is due for steering or suspension repair. Hillmuth Auto Care provides steering and suspension service, repair and replacement in all four of our Maryland locations in Glenwood, Columbia, Clarksville and Gaithersburg.

Suspension Problems

Your car’s suspension system is there to help you maintain contact with the road, as well as drive smoothly even if the roads are far from perfect. Suspension system consists of numerous components, but the ones you may be most familiar with are struts and shocks. Both are wear parts that may need to be replaced at some point. Here are a few signs that your suspension system could use a tuneup:

  • Rough riding that causes excessive bouncing
  • Pulling or drifting during turns
  • Nose dive when stopping
  • Excessive bouncing in park when you press on the front or back of the car

Because your vehicle’s suspension is subject to a lot of pressure and movements, sometimes connections just come loose. Tightening a few bolts may be all you need to get rid of that annoying bounce.

Steering Problems

Steering problems can often be related to suspension issues, or they can occur on their own without an obvious precursor. Some of the symptoms of steering problems include:

  • Steering wheel wanders back and forth
  • Steering is slipping
  • Steering is hard, especially at low speeds

Sometimes, steering problems are caused by poor wheel alignment, which leads to imprecise handling. If the problem is in the steering system itself, it often has to do with the power steering assembly. It could be a leaking power steering fluid or a failing pump—whatever it is, our ASE-certified mechanics will make sure you leave Hillmuth Auto Care in a vehicle that is safe to drive!

Schedule your steering and suspension repair appointment today at one of our locations in Gaithersburg, Columbia, Glenwood or Clarksville.
