CORONA VIRUS POLICY

Suspension & Shock Absorbers


Shock absorbers are the central component of your vehicle suspension and do need to be replaced as they can wear out before other parts of your suspension.

Be aware of these suspension early warning signs:


  • Car not sitting level when parked.

  • Uneven tyre wear.

  • Abnormal noises when driving.

  • Vehicle heights indicate spring problems.

  • Steering pulls one way.

  • Excessive body roll on corners.
  • A lot of suspension bouncing when you drive.

  • Steering pulls when braking.

  • Poor handling.

  • Steering wheel off centre.

  • Vibrations when driving.

  • Suspension diving under braking.
 
 

Tyres Brakes and Suspension


car suspension springs and shocker new tyre This trio is what you rely on to stop when you apply the brakes. On the surface you may think that suspension wear and tear will only impact on your ride and comfort but the real danger is when the suspension loses its ability to keep your tyres in constant contact with the road and particularly on wet roads, you then become an accident waiting to happen because traction is lost.
 
 

Get your brakes and suspension working together again.


$77 Suspension performance and safety checkup:


  • Check for uneven tyre wear.

  • Vehicle heights side to side.

  • Condition of shock absorbers (make sure they aren’t leaking and do control the bounce of the spring).

  • Condition of suspension bushes (whether they are cracked, torn or have excessive movement).

  • Check general suspension system wear.
  • Power steering system (condition of fluid, noisy pump, check for leaks, check drive belt for cracks, condition of hoses).

  • Check Tie rod ends, rack ends and ball joints for play/wear.

  • Check for noises/play in wheel bearings.

  • Check condition of brake system (pads, discs, shoes, brake fluid).
