All about Steering & Suspension

A regular suspension and steering service check will ensure the overall comfort and safety of the passengers. The shocks, or struts, will be inspected and, if necessary, replaced. Power steering fluid will be checked, and a wheel alignment will be performed if necessary. All of these actions will extend the life of your tires and improve your vehicle’s efficiency.

Protrans has highly trained mechanics familiar with all types of suspension systems. They can inspect, diagnose problems, discuss the repairs required with you and then fix your suspension system.

Typically a car’s suspension is built to take complete care of road isolation, handling and cornering. These measures ensure that your car maintains constant contact with the road, handles well, follows a curved path as expected, and is comfortable.

How does the steering and suspension system work?

Vehicles are built with one of two steering systems: reciprocating ball steering and rack and pinion steering.

A car’s steering system is designed so that a turn of the steering wheel results in a relatively minor correction of wheel direction to maneuver the vehicle. The steering effort is transferred to the wheels via a series of pivot joints, which allows the wheels to move up and down with the suspension system without interfering with the steering angle. The suspension system connects your car’s body to the wheels via shocks.

What are the common problems regarding the Steering & Suspension system?

Numerous problems arise with the Steering and Suspension system:

  • Difficulty when turning the wheel
  • One corner of your car sits lower than the other
  • Vibration in the steering wheel
  • Noises when turning the steering wheel
  • Looseness in the steering wheel
  • The vehicle wanders or pulls to one side

Our Customer Reviews

Clean, knowledgable, experienced and professional. Prices were more than fair and they were a pleasure to work with on rebuild of my Ford Transit Connect's transmission. Planning on having them repair my GMC diesel next.

Truck running in limp mode. Message to service exhaust system now. Called and they told me to bring it in. This was on a Friday. By Monday it was diagnosed as a diesel particulate filter plugged up. Regen did not solve the problem. Suggested replacement of entire exhaust after treatment system. I ok’d the work. Took two weeks to get the scarce parts. Great word great people to work with. Highly recommend this shop.

Had to have the transmission totally rebuilt. Got it done in a week and am really satisfied. They did a wonderful job. Thanks for your help.

Repaired transmission last year and front suspension last week. Just checked with my son, who drove for first time today for significant time: "Drives great thanks for everything" So everything is great. Your usual great work!

Juanita Bigelow Feb 2, 2023

This was my first time visit at Protrans Automotive, I did not know what to expect and was worried about how bad my car was and what it would cost me. Jeff greeted me and was very professional and welcoming. While my car was being repaired, I made arrangements to rent a car at a rental place, which was about 1/2 mile away. I was offered a ride to the car rental place by Protrans, which was really nice and accommodating since the weather was very frigid that morning. That afternoon, Jeff called me and advised my car was ready and it was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. I was pleased with their hospitality and professionalism. I am happy with my car and it is running great!!! Thank you for your great service.

Stella Sayers Jan 1, 2023

Excellent and kind car service. I did a walk-in oil change and stayed throughout the appointment. Their guest area is very clean. They were efficient and very clear with me about the service and price. I would highly recommend.

Victor Hurtado Dec 12, 2022

Where do i start.. Wednesday afternoon 3pm before Thanksgiving on way home to Phoenix, car goes into limp mode, got referred to Protrans. Called them they agreed to take a look. Diagnosed, parts ordered and Throttle Body replaced and road tested. So very excited to know that there are still Honest shops out there that actually care about their clients. Highly recommend Protrans.

Jerry Griffus Nov 11, 2022

Very friendly! They checked our car and gave us professional recommendations for free! Will surely go back to them when next oil change needed.

Yuan-Lu Chen Nov 11, 2022

Went in for transmission repair, after diagnosing the problem they told me I didn't need a full rebuild saving me well over $1,000.00. They found some safety issues I wasn't aware of and I had them take care of all of them. The truck is running great! Thank you Protrans.

ray zambrano Nov 11, 2022

Professional, clean, courteous, helpful and reasonable.

Kevin Mahoney Nov 11, 2022

Jeff, Matt and Hayley and the team at ProTrans did an incredible job and went above and beyond for us. We had a one of a kind, 1970 Ford Chinook MotorHome that made it down to Joshua Tree from Homer Alaska. It sat during the plandemic and we finally rescued her almost 3 years later. She did not deal with the transition to desert life smoothly and was leaking badly and ran terribly. We had her towed to Riverside and found ProTrans from a referral from another shop. The team at ProTrans rebuilt the transmission and went through the engine to get us back on the road without breaking our budget. Jeff was good about communicating and Matt even drove over the day after we picked it up to help assess some issues that came up on the way home. Can’t say enough about the professionalism, care, and service we received and would recommend them to anyone for all car repairs!

Eseta Moala Aug 8, 2022

Good Day; The service at "Protrans" was "Top Notch " ! Before I took my car to "Protrans", I took it to another service center and I was told that it needed a Transmission Replacement to the tune of $3,500.00. I then took it to "PROTRANS" for a second opinion and their tec found that all that was needed was for the front wheel bearing to be replaced. That was a savings of over $3,000.00 dollars 💵. So if you need ANY work done on your automobile I would have "PROTRANS" ✔ it out first. T. Van Dorn

Thomas Van Dorn Jul 7, 2022

Good solid business!! Good customer service!! My car was handled with care!!! Appreciate you all!!!

Felipe Avila Jul 7, 2022

Brought my 01 accord in and they were extremely courteous, quick and efficient with their services. I honestly wouldn’t recommend any other shop in the riverside area besides them. 10/10 you literally can’t go wrong choosing them!

Keanu Ivey Jul 7, 2022

A honest and dependable place to take your car.

Gloria Lopez Oct 10, 2021

Very grateful and impressed with Hayley Jeff and Mike at ProTrans. Dealer quoted $3000 for a new transmission. Took it to ProTrans for a second opinion. They honestly called and reported that it was just an issue with the driveshaft and $150 later I was out the door. I appreciate the honesty and integrity of Jeff and this company. Would highly recommend and would return!

shane emery Jul 7, 2022

If you’re looking for an honest and affordable automotive service, this is the place. I took my 2010 Ford Focus and they fixed my issue at a reasonable price and provided recommendations to enhance my vehicle. I did take the recommendations and my car runs like new. They have great customer service and now I’m a loyal customer!

Steven Pacheco Jul 7, 2022

Very professional outfit there. These guys did great work on my Kia. I know those parts were hard to find too. My car has never run better. Highly recommend this place...Just an update I was called by the owner I believe a month ago. He was checking in to make sure everything was still OK. Thanks. You definitely don't see that kind of follow up, and customer service much. You guys are great.

Thomas Apr 4, 2022

I told my mom (Anna) that this place seemed like a great place based off the reviews. Let me tell you these people are amazing they fixed the transmission to our 2012 Kia over a month ago and the car is still doing great just passed it smog test. They were incredibly kind to my mother and sympathetic to our situation they even gave her a ride home. They worked quickly we would have gotten our car a day earlier than we did but our phone number was incorrect but never the less I would highly recommend them.

Sophie Jul 7, 2022

Had a good experience. The staff were friendly and honest.

Roy Hornaday Jun 6, 2022

Jeff, Hayley, Mike and the whole Crew at pro trans are great! They are professional, up front and most of all honest. I have used their service on multiple occasions and always left feeling confident that my van was fixed right and that I got a fair price. I recommend them to everyone!!

Nasser Dahdul Aug 8, 2020

Had an 2 quart over fill from another business that caused a leak on my transmission Protrans fixed the leak and brought the fluid down to where it's supposed to be, I thank the people at Protrans for helping me get my truck to where it's supposed to be before any damage could be done !!

Ralph Delgado Jun 6, 2022

My alternator went out on my car while I was driving to Arizona with my 3 dogs and a cat , to say I was stressed is an understatement and they had my car up and running before lunch time!! I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the service and their kindness.. Thanks Jeff!!👍
