Steering and suspension are two key systems in an automobile that work together to provide a smooth and controlled ride.
The steering system is responsible for controlling the direction of the vehicle. It consists of several components, including the steering wheel, steering column, steering gear, and tie rods. The power steering system, which is present in most modern cars, uses hydraulic pressure to make steering easier and more precise.
The suspension system, on the other hand, is responsible for maintaining the contact between the tires and the road surface. It includes several components, including the shocks, struts, springs, control arms, and sway bars. The suspension system helps to absorb shocks and vibrations from the road and provides a comfortable and stable ride.
These systems are interconnected, as the steering system relies on the suspension to maintain the wheels' alignment, and the suspension relies on the steering to maintain the proper direction of the vehicle. Issues with either system can result in poor handling, uneven tire wear, and a bumpy ride. Regular maintenance and inspection of these systems are essential to ensure safe and reliable operation of your vehicle.
