At Whitley Automotive, we take suspension and steering service seriously so that our team can help you keep moving down the road safely. We always go above and beyond to diagnose drivability issues, explain our recommendations, and complete repairs using quality parts.


At our auto shops in Marshville and Locust, NC, we perform all the necessary steering and suspension services, including servicing the following parts:

Tie rods • Control arms • Ball joints • Sway bar links • Axles • Pitman arm • Idler arm • Steering gearbox • Shocks and struts • Coil springs • Torsion bars

Before replacing parts, we must figure out what’s going on with your vehicle. To do that, our mechanics start with a vehicle health check. We may recommend additional diagnostics and tests to pinpoint the issue if the problem is not immediately apparent.

Once we have our recommendations, our team will review them with you. We want you to have all the details necessary to make excellent car care decisions and stay safe on the road.

Signs You Need
Steering Repair

Steering issues are often immediately apparent as parts wear down or get damaged. If you notice these signs, you likely need steering repairs:

A slight pulling sensation or vibrations through the wheel • Poor vehicle handling • Difficulty turning the wheel • Odd noises while turning

The severity of the symptoms will continue to worsen as you keep driving. Eventually, your vehicle will feel unsafe to drive, leaving you without a working car until it’s fixed.

Above all else, come into our shop whenever you feel something is off with your vehicle. Getting prompt repairs is vital to preventing minor issues from getting worse. By coming into the shop at the first sign of a problem, you can save time and money, ensuring you can get back on the road fast.
