The front transverse links, also known as front control arms or A arms, are a vital part of your car’s suspension system. They’re what allow your tires to move smoothly along with all the bumps and potholes on today’s roadways.
Front transverse links regulate the motion of the car’s wheels so that they stay in line with the body of the car. They’re connected to the frame of your vehicle by means of bushings, which are attached to the wheel knuckle at the ball joints. When you hit a bump, the transverse link compresses the weight of your car and keeps the tire in proper alignment with the road.
Though it doesn’t have a set replacement interval, the transverse link usually needs to be replaced about every 100,000 miles. If you’re having trouble controlling your car, the problem could be a front transverse link. One of our expert mechanics can diagnose and repair a variety of front end problems, so any difficulty with vehicle handling will be resolved without trouble.
If you’re just driving around town at low speeds, you probably won’t run into too much trouble. But if you’re driving at high speeds on the highway and the front transverse links are faulty, you could easily lose control of your car. Have one of our expert mechanics diagnose your front end problems and repair the transverse links if necessary.
