Suspension System - Bumpy ride?
If you feel like a Jurassic Park movie, every time the vehicle is driven over a bump, then chances are the suspension or steering is wearing. Noises every time a vehicle is driven over a small bump or turning could mean that the suspension arms could be worn, suspension coil springs may be broken, or worst still the shock absorbers could lack any damping effect. The suspension system of a vehicle is designed to provide comfort and a smooth ride for all within the vehicle, by utilizing a series of components, the speed at which tyres and brakes wear can be reduced.
Our technicians can accompany you on a test drive to distinguish the noise which may be emanating from the vehicle, in addition to this we can carry out a visual and stress test on the vehicle to pin point suspension wear issues. Whether the vehicle has air adjustable suspension or lowered springs, we can cater for most vehicles within the same day.
Benefits of Steering and Suspension
Shaky, unsteady, off-center, and stiff steering are all cause for getting a steering system repaired, while excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving and braking are cause for a suspension system inspection. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a suspension problem, though this may also point to alignment issues. Have you hit a pothole recently? Potholes can cause damage to steering and suspension components. Worn suspension components will reduce the stability of the vehicle and the control of the driver. Because suspension system components combine into one working unit, suspension issues that go untreated have the potential to increase the wear on other suspension components, which may result in more extensive repairs down the road.
