- Steering wheel vibration
- Car veers in side winds
- Car rocks and rolls over bumps and doesn’t hug bends when cornering

Your suspension and shock absorbers contain several parts including springs, struts, strut bearings, anti-sway bars, stabiliser links and ball joints. All of these parts can become worn, loose and/or broken through normal driving of your vehicle especially bumps and jolts on uneven road surfaces, pot holes, curbs etc.
