Steering and suspension repairs

At Steve Sorensen Mechanical we are able to handle everything from a steering and suspension inspection and report, through to repairs such as –

  • Suspension bushings
  • Shock absorbers
  • Suspension arms
  • Power steering leaks
  • Steering racks
  • Power steering pumps
  • Advanced stability control diagnostics

Steering and suspension issues can present themselves in many ways – uneven or rapid tyre wear, clunks or squeaks over bumps, a general vague sloppy feeling all over rather than the tight, direct car you once had.

These symptoms are the most common complaints, but worn steering and suspension components are much more than an annoying squeak, as they make up one of the most important but often overlooked safety systems of your vehicle.

Just like our bodies, the moving components of your car’s steering and suspension wear out with age – we call it ‘carthritis’.  The good news is a regular inspection which we do at every scheduled service, can identify any problems.  This allows them to be addressed quickly and before knock on effects like poor tyre wear, or finding yourself in an emergency stop or swerve situation with steering and suspension components that are just not up to the task.

Did you know that travelling at under 50kph, just one worn shock absorber out of the four on your vehicle can increase braking distances by up to 2 metres – this can make all the difference.

What our customers say

Thank you for your letter and business cards which I received yesterday. I was so impressed with your service, value for money and speed of turn around that I have already been telling all my friends about your business. I will pass on your business cards and details. Thank you so much for the work you did on my car last week, I appreciate it very much.


I was looking for a thorough, professional mechanic in the local area and Steve told me of the attention to detail required there. I couldn’t be happier! The car is running better than ever and the repair of the other problems before they became major, demonstrates the attention to detail previously mentioned. Your after service response to my call was handled promptly and without hesitation. I just wanted to say a big thank you for your professionalism and friendly service. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone needing a great mechanic. Thank you again and see you soon with our other car (and continued servicing of both).
