Suspension And Shock Absorbers
At Cardoc the suspension system is fully checked over as part of our routine Servicing service to ensure your safe and comfortable as possible for the upcoming 6-12 months. This includes checks on the shock absorbers. Damaged and worn shock absorbers can reduce braking efficiency, cause poor cornering experiences and tyre wear.
Look out for the following symptoms which may be linked to defective components linked to the suspension system:
- When pulling away from standstill a knocking noise may occur from the front of the vehicle.
- When travelling across uneven surfaces, e.g. speed humps or bumpy roads, a knocking noise may be heard from either end of the vehicle. The ride of the vehicle may be an uncomfortable one.
- On straight roads, e.g. a motorway, the vehicle drifts or pulls towards the defective side.
If you come across any of the above get in touch for a free suspension inspection. All work comes with a free 1 year / 12k miles parts and labour guarantee, undertaken by Bosch Accredited Technicians.
