Gainesville FL Automotive Alignment, Suspension & Steering


Carrsmith provides automotive wheel alignments using state-of-the-art Hunter Hawkeye Elite wheel alignment equipment, as wells as a wide range of services for suspension and steering at our auto repair shop in Gainesville including but not limited to air suspension, Active Body Control (ABC), Magic Body Control (MBC), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP), and trouble shooting for systems incorporating yaw-rate sensors, integrated lateral-acceleration sensors, and steering-angle sensors. The suspension in your car or truck is an intricately networked series of cooperating parts that are intended to provide an even, stable, and smooth ride. The suspension system in your vehicle takes a considerable amount of road abuse you experience in Gainesville and as such many of the suspension system's components will wear out, if not even break as a result. There are many symptoms of a faulty suspension system and being aware of common warning signs can save you from having expensive repair costs, not to mention keeping your passengers and you safe when driving in and around Gainesville. Some of these warning signs may include a vehicle's tendency to pull to one side when driving, wheels wiggling and wandering back and forth, bouncing/dipping AFTER going over a bump, steering wheel slipping, difficulty steering, wheel vibration, and screeching or screaming noises when steering at low speeds.

The automotive technicians of Carrsmith are expertly trained in the repair, service, and diagnosis of steering and suspension problems at our Carrsmith auto repair shop. If you think you are having problems with your steering or suspension bring your car or truck to our Gainesville shop location and let one of our trained mechanics provide you with a complete suspension system inspection and offer various service suggestions to keep your car or truck in optimal performance condition.
