Your vehicle's suspension system is a complex arrangement of components intended to work together to limit the vibrations and bumps from the street surface, giving a smooth, controlled
and comfortable drive.

The suspension components consist of a coil spring and a shock absorber or, as it is sometimes known, a dampener. These parts collaborate to dampen down and cushion the automotive by absorbing the effect from potholes and other minor defects in the road. This keeps your vehicle stable and your tyres firmly in contact with the road surface for the maximum time needed for your brakes to work correctly. Worn shock absorbers can add up to 2 meters to your braking distance when going at 30mph as tyres have less contact with the road.

Maintaining a healthy vehicle suspension framework is crucial to for a comfortable, stable and safe drive
in your car.

It is not generally clear that an issue is present in your suspension system as it happens over a long period of time the changes may not be obvious. Our mechanics will provide a full report and show you any issues we find, along with a clear quotation for any work, where required.
