Is your car handling a little oddly? Making funny noises during corners, wearing tyres badly, or simply plain uncomfortable when driving? It could be that your suspension requires servicing. Even if you’re not experiencing any of these symptoms, your suspension needs regular checks to ensure that it’s all in tip top working order. Remember that after tyres and brakes, the suspension is one of the most important components on any vehicle.
Maintaining the integrity of your vehicle’s suspension system is a must when it comes to ensuring a safe and comfortable drive. Your vehicle’s suspension is made up of many parts, all of which, must remain in good condition. When any one part becomes worn, your suspension system becomes unsafe and ineffective.
The primary function of any vehicles suspension is to keep all four tyres in firm and constant contact with the road. This allows your steering, driving and braking systems to remain effective across most terrains.
Indicators your suspension may need servicing include:
Vehicle dips forward when braking
Vehicle does not sit level when parked
Experiencing a lot of bouncing when driving
Excessive body rolls on corners
Signs of unusual tread wear on your tyres
Shock absorbers are leaking fluid
It is ill advised to leave your suspension unchecked for extended periods of time as this may lead to unfortunate, and completely avoidable, accidents. To help maintain optimum functioning of your suspension, a thorough inspection should be performed at every service, or prior to commencing any long journey.
