Extreme Pot Holes - How to Minimize Steering & Suspension Repairs in Grosse Pointe Woods

As you suffer the driving consequences of this winter’s freeze, Grosse Pointe Auto is here to help ease your pain in two ways. First, we’ll tend to any damage done by the dastardly craters to your steering or suspension if necessary, while doing our best to keep the damage to your wallet minimal. Second, we’ll share the following advice to prevent steering and suspension damage as much as possible!

Tips to Managing Potholes in the Road

Avoiding them when possible is always an optimal strategy, of course. To do this safely, you will need to watch for potholes and drive around them (but only when it doesn’t put you or other drivers at risk). One way to do this safely is to leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle ahead of you, so you won’t drive into it if you need to alter your course a bit. When you cannot avoid a pothole, drive as slowly as you can, and steer straight over it instead of turning your vehicle as you drive over it.  

Always keep the tires on your vehicle properly inflated. This will make them more resistant to the damage that potholes can do to them. If they are too inflated or not inflated enough, they may be harmed more easily, which in turn can affect your steering and suspension.
