Clinic Length: Approx. 3 hours Training Location: Garage Gurus  3180 Riverport Tech Center Drive Maryland Heights, MO  63043 This clinic enhances the skills of the professional undercar technician in the areas of mechanical and electronic steering and suspension systems. We discuss proper component inspection procedures on today’s popular suspension and steering systems. Vehicle diagnostic strategies revolving around ride quality and handling issues are a focus with an emphasis on electronic shocks and air springs used on vehicles with ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspension). A description, operation and diagnostic segment on electric steer vehicles is included. Integration of these components within modern day safety systems result in special wheel alignment procedures after ‘hard part’ replacement. We discuss how to perform this service the ‘right way’ to restore proper vehicle handling and control. Calibrating various steering and suspension components after replacement is highlighted.   After completing this clinic, the student will have the knowledge to: Relate worn chassis components to accelerated tire wear and inadequate steering, stopping and stability Define the operation of electronically assisted steering systems (column drive, rack motor drive, belt drive) Validate performance of steering and suspension components on ECS equipped vehicles Understand the function and calibration needs of the Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) within various vehicle safety systems Recognize scan tool functional tests, data stream interpretation and output controls to complete electronic steering and suspension service procedures Read More
