What can cause even minor steering and suspension problems?
If you are in an accident, even a minor one, it can damage your suspension system or knock your wheels out of alignment. Simply bumping or hitting a curb, pothole or large rock can damage your suspension. Just balancing or aligning the wheels won’t correct a suspension problem. After any suspension work, you may need to get an alignment.
