Your vehicle’s suspension system is designed to work together to limit the vibrations and undulations from the road surface, providing a smooth, controlled and comfortable driving experience. Maintaining a healthy vehicle suspension system is vital to gain the optimum comfort, stability and handling characteristics from your vehicle.
How do I know when to have my car suspension checked?
It’s not always obvious that there’s a problem with your vehicle suspension system. This is normally due to a gradual loss of performance in the shocks and springs, and because this happens over time you might not always feel the decrease in suspension performance.
However, there are some signs to indicate you need your car suspension serviced, including:
- If you feel every bump in the road or the vehicle body bounces.
- If your vehicle leans when turning.
- If you feel your steering wheel slipping.
- If your wheel is hard to turn.
Why should I check my car suspension?
There are many reasons to check your suspension, including the fact that it keeps your steering stable, it ensures good handling of your vehicle, it helps to prevent your vehicle from rolling over, and it gives you and your passengers a smooth and comfortable ride.
What will our technicians do when checking your car suspension?
Our main priority is your safety when driving your vehicle. When looking at your vehicle’s suspension, our technicians will check for play (movement) in your wheels, both visually and physically. They will investigate the rubber bushes to ensure they are not worn down. They will check the coil springs are working correctly and if the dampers are turning freely. And they will also check the bounce on your vehicle for the shocks.
After all these tests are completed, our technicians will provide your suspension repairs and get you back on the road with a smooth ride, feeling just like new.
