Suspension And Shock Absorbers

Your vehicle’s suspension system is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. It is designed to absorb vibrations from the road surface, which in turn helps to deliver a smooth, even and more comfortable driving experience. This part of your car also helps keep the tyres firmly in contact with the road at all times to assist with handling and braking.

Over time, your car shock absorber and suspension components can become worn down and damaged. The truth is, a worn suspension system can significantly impact your stopping distances, so it’s important that you do what you can to maintain a healthy vehicle suspension system. It’s crucial to check its condition regularly in order to gain optimum stability, comfort and handling from your car.

What Are The Signs That My Suspension Needs Attention?

Aside from a slightly bumpier ride, it may not always be obvious that there is a problem with your vehicle suspension system. This is generally due to a gradual loss of performance in the main suspension parts, meaning there is a good chance you might not always notice a decrease in suspension performance.

There are many different components of your car's suspension system that can develop faults, including the struts, mounts and ball joints. Diagnosing these issues yourself can be difficult, but if these parts become worn or damaged, you may be able to hear a knocking sound, especially when driving over speed bumps and uneven surfaces. It’s also important to note that other components, such as misaligned tyres, could be the source of the problem. If this is the case, you may find it difficult to control your vehicle.
