Suspension Problems?

It is not always obvious that a problem in your vehicle suspension system is present. This is generally due to a gradual loss of performance in the principle suspension parts and because this happens over time a motorist may not always feel the gradual decrease in suspension performance. Our trained suspension specialists will inspect your vehicle and quickly identify any problems with your suspension system. The technician will provide a full report and show you any issues we find, along with a clear quotation for any work, where required.

Suspension and Shock Absorbers

Your vehicle's suspension system is effectively a complex series of components designed to work together to limit the vibrations and undulations from the road surface, providing a smooth, controlled and comfortable driving experience.

The principle suspension components include a coil spring and a shock absorber or, as it is sometimes known, a dampener. These components work together to dampen down and cushion the vehicle by absorbing the impact from potholes and other minor imperfections in the road. This keeps your vehicle stable and your tyres firmly in contact with the road surface for the maximum amount of time which is essential for your brakes to work effectively. Worn shock absorbers can add up to 2 metres to your braking distance when travelling at 30mph as tyres have less contact with the road.

Maintaining a healthy vehicle suspension system is vital if you are to gain the optimum comfort, stability and handling characteristics from your vehicle.
