Steering Repair in Rochester, MN - Babcock Auto Care

Your steering is Important

As important as acceleration and braking are to your driving experience, they mean nothing without the ability to control your direction. Your steering system enables you to point your vehicle in the direction you want to go, while maintaining fluid control of your vehicle.
There are different kinds of steering systems depending on your type of vehicle. Many trucks, full-size SUVs and heavy-duty vehicles use a recirculating ball steering system - essentially a worm shaft that moves the sector shaft - to control your steering direction. Most passenger cars and light-duty trucks and SUVs use a rack and pinion design, where the steering shaft moves the steering gear side to side inside a tube connected to the wheels. In both systems, pressurized power steering fluid assists in making the steering motion as easy as possible.
Another increasingly popular steering system is electric power steering. Primarily used with rack and pinion systems, it provides steering assist with an electric motor, instead of a hydraulic power steering fluid system.
Any type of steering system is crucial to your overall driving ability. If just one part is worn, leaking or loose, your vehicle control can be compromised, and you'll need steering repairs.

Timely steering repair serves you well

Because the steering system is closely tied to your vehicle's safe operation, every problem you experience should be addressed immediately. If you ignore a symptom such as a loose steering feel, binding when you're turning, clunking or rattling, or lack of power steering assist, you may be putting yourself at risk of an accident.
If you experience any of these symptoms, or if you are concerned about your steering ability in any way, obtain steering repair work without delay. If left for too long, a loose tie rod can separate, or leaking power steering fluid could make you lose control of your steering. Any of this can be easily avoided in the right time.

Words from our clients:

Customer service was great and follow up details about my vehicle while it was in the shop were very helpful. Emails with attached pictures and details was a first for me and the shop contacted me regarding services needed rather than just fixing it and charging me. I knew everything going on from drop off until pickup. The shuttle service was also very helpful!
