Ask the Automotive Experts: What is Bumpsteer?

What is "bumpsteer?"

Bumpsteer, a condition that allows road irregularities to steer the vehicle, is normally caused by misalignment of the steering system. For example, on parallelogram linkage, the centerlink may not be level. On a rack and pinion system, the rack housing may not be level.

To accurately detect bumpsteer, a series of measurements need to be taken. You can contact the automotive experts at Scott’s Fort Collins Auto and Repair today for a free alignment check. Call (970) 484-2477 or visit
