Servicing - Suspension

Suspension System On the suspension system there are many moving parts, the main component of which is rubber that can dry out over a period of time and can crack and perish. In the worst situation the rubber components can split. You may be able to recognise when a component has become defective, some of the effects could be:

Symptoms

  • When pulling away from a standstill a knocking noise may occur from the front of the vehicle.
  • When travelling along uneven surfaces, i.e. speed humps or bumpy roads, once again a knocking noise may be heard from either end of the vehicle and the ride in the vehicle may be an uncomfortable one.
  • On a straight road, i.e. a motorway, if one side at the front of the vehicle there is a defective component, the vehicle will drift or pull to the defective side.

Shock Absorbers An important part of the suspension is the shock absorbers. These are usually hydraulic or gas filled. They are essential to control the bounce on the vehicle and to ensure the tyres are kept firmly on the road. Damaged and worn shock absorbers can reduce the braking efficiency, cause poor cornering and tyre wear.

It is very important to have regular checks on your vehicle, whether it is every 6 or 12 months, to ensure that the ride comfort and suspension system are kept at an optimum level. At Cardoc the suspension system is fully checked over as part of our routine servicing to make sure that you remain as safe and comfortable as possible.

With all our technicians being highly trained and fully experienced you can rest assured that you and your vehicle are in safe hands.

Free suspension checks and advice are available from our trained technicians, just call in or Contact Us.
