Identifying and Inspecting Suspension and Steering Components

Identifying and Inspecting Suspension and Steering Components

There are a lot of different elements of a suspension and steering system that must be monitored routinely for wear and degradation. Many of the suspension and steering components can be visually inspected from underneath your vehicle once raised on a service lift.

We inspect the tie rod ends, inner and outer, to make sure that the boots are in good condition and zero movement exists within the joint. A lot of the components on modern vehicles now come without grease fittings and rely on the grease charge that they had when they were new to keep them healthy for a long time. If the boots deteriorate or tear, that grease charge will be lost. When a grease charge is lost, water can penetrate, corrosion can set in, and the part will very quickly wear out, or worse fail. If the tie rod ends have grease fittings, we ensure that we service them each time you have your vehicle in for an oil change, or as requested by the customer – it’s just part of our service.

Next, we look at the upper and lower ball joints. Again, we check to ensure the boots and fittings are in good condition, and in most cases, zero lateral movement.

We inspect the stabilizer links to make sure their bushings are in good condition. We’re looking to see that they’re not broken or missing.k
We check the sway bar itself and visually inspect the bushings and mounts. We also visually inspect for fluid leaks as we move from component to component underneath.

More and more cars and light trucks use an electronic steering system. While we don’t typically find fluid leaks here we still consider wear and tear of the linkage.

Next are the Struts and Shock Absorbers. We inspect the lower mounts for bushing wear and tear.

We inspect the springs, seats and upper strut bearings if equipped. We are checking to see if the springs are broken, sagging or the seats have worn. We also inspect the bushings for no lateral or vertical movement within the mount.

We search for signs of any problem with the boots on the steering rack assembly. If they’re torn that means road debris, water, and dirt can infiltrate the inner tie rods or degrade the rack seals thereby developing wear within the system.

Suspension system inspections are not limited to the front of the vehicle only. There are struts or shocks on the rear of the vehicle that also need to be inspected.

We look for signs of leaks around the shock body and at the piston seals and packing. A very light stain or appearance of moisture can be normal. If we find fluid running out though, that is a problem. We consider the age of the shocks and perform a Jounce Test to detect potential issues. Those little steel wafers inside the shocks provide dampening of the thousands and thousands of very small irregularities your suspension absorbs on any given road. Struts and Shocks wear out, sag or break and no longer provide the quality ride they did when they were new. We check service information and any recommendations it provides. It’s not uncommon to recommend Struts or Shocks be replaced based on age.

Next is the track bar, trailing or leading arms. We make sure those bushings are in good shape because this component aids in steering stability. We thrive on safety so any concerns found here, or elsewhere will be relayed to you, our valued customer.

We also check the condition of the bump stops in both the front and the rear of the vehicle.As you can see, there’s a lot to suspension and steering systems. A complete inspection checks all of these components on the front and the rear of the vehicle, on both the left and right sides.

Let Tierra Del Sol Automotive inspect your vehicle today – to ensure your safety. Stop by the shop or give us a call today. (575) 443-1880

Brake Service - Tierra Del Sol Automotive

Have Your Brake Fluid Flush Done Right!

Brakes are a vital function of every vehicle, and caring for them takes more than just listening for the squeal of worn-out brake pads.

In just 30,000 miles, brakes can lose responsiveness and feel spongy. That’s why most vehicle manufacturers recommend that brake fluid be exchanged every two years. Without proper care, corrosion of internal brake parts can lead to brake failure.

Tierra Del Sol Automotive offers the “BG Brake Service”. The BG Brake Service removes contaminants from the brake system and replaces old brake fluid with fresh fluid.

The result is an immediate restoration of brake responsiveness and corrosion protection, which means safer driving for you… and it’s backed by the Lifetime BG Protection Plan® at no extra charge. Call and ask us about our Brake Service today (575) 443 – 1880.

Had my first oil and filter change here, and the service was excellent. Time in shop was exactly what they estimated, price was very good, and no oil drips when they finished. I will return for any future services needed.
Thanks for taking care of the wife's Benz! We know we can depend on your place to keep us going.
