Your vehicle suspension ensures all four of your tyres on the road providing maximum grip and safety. It’s vital for all your suspension components to be in good condition if you’re to enjoy a smooth, comfortable drive with excellent stability and reliable vehicle handling.
Suspension parts are designed to work together to absorb any impact from bumps and irregularities on the road surface. Worn or broken suspension parts not only affect your comfort whilst driving, they can impact your braking efficiency and even cause your tyres to wear unevenly and prematurely.
All our branches offer a free suspension check so it’s worth booking your vehicle into our workshops if you feel that something is amiss. Suspension parts can get damaged whilst your driving or like all components, simply deteriorate over time due to wear and tear. There are a few warning signs that something may need looking at on your vehicle suspension, which include:
- A change in how your vehicle handles or ‘feels to drive’
- Heaviness when turning
- Knocking noises
- Swaying in side winds
- Increased travel sickness
- Loss of grip
When our branches carry out a suspension check, they will be able to provide you with a no-obligation quote if they find a part needs replacing.
Suspension faults that are left undetected can cause damage to other parts over a period of time increasing your repair bill. The checks we carry out also look for any signs of leaking, damage or corrosion that may have an impact on the car’s performance, including your car’s ability to corner & brake effectively.
Yes. All our parts are covered by manufacturers’ guarantee against defects and faults. These range from 1 to 3 years so please ask in branch for the exact details on the parts for your vehicle.
When we remove and replace steering and suspension parts, all the angles of your vehicle’s alignment will be altered. It is vital that these are reset in order to prevent excessive tyre wear and fuel consumption. If there is a suspension problem that our technicians are able to detect when they check your vehicle alignment, they will recommend the problem is rectified before an alignment adjustment takes place.
