The car's steering system allows the car to turn and the suspension system makes the trip smooth. However, there are things that go wrong that make traveling difficult or difficult or dangerous to drive. This means repair time. Many types of steering and suspension systems have been used to drive the car.
Older cars used mechanical car suspensions based on springs and shock absorbers, while newer cars used hydraulic cylinders called struts. Without proper maintenance, the vehicle's steering system must be capable of performing smooth turns of 80,000 to 100,000 miles.

Here are some troubleshooting tips for steering and suspension systems:
- If the vehicle's power steering roars while turning, the power steering fluid level needs to be checked.
- If the vehicle beeps loudly, the power steering belt needs to be checked.
- If the vehicle drifts, the tire pressure must be checked for damage.
- If the vehicle overturns badly in a corner, the stabilizer and struts need to be inspected for loose parts and wear.
- If older cars are difficult to drive, the Zerk steering system gear needs to be lubricated.
Follow these instructions to repair the guidance system:
The ends of the connecting rods should be inspected, adjusted, and restored if needed. They join the tire to the steering wheel. Mark the old position to replace the new one at the same position.
The steering wheel should be inspected, repaired, and, replaced if needed. Adjustments to the steering control system can be made with a spanner and screwdriver. You can find help in the service manual. In case of replacement, the steering wheel and column must be removed first. The repaired steering system can be examined by test.
