What do we check during suspension repairs?
Our experts will first check all the components of your car’s suspension to detect the issues. These components are:
Springs: Leaf or coil springs (and sometimes torsion bars) are used in cars to absorb the impacts from large bumps on the road.
Shock absorbers and struts: These dampen the motion of the springs after the vehicle goes over a bump, thereby keeping your car from bouncing excessively. We also check and refill the oil, and inspect the shock absorbers Mansfield thoroughly for any sign of leakage.
Linkages: These are metal rods that connect different parts of the suspension system.
Bearings, bushings and joints: These keep linkages connected to bigger components and enable sliding/twisting actions. Rubber bushings, tie rod ends, ball joints- all require timely attention because these tend to wear out quickly.
What are some of the common symptoms indicating a damaged suspension?
Book an appointment with our garage for suspension repair Mansfield if you come across the following issues:
Feeling every bump
If you push your entire weight on your car’s bonnet and it bounces more than three times once you release the weight, you will probably need to replace the shock absorbers Mansfield.
If the shock absorbers/struts are oily or greasy, you might want to let our experts take a look at them.
Your car dips or nose-dives
If your vehicle lurches downwards or nose-dives whenever you press down on the brakes, it could be because of worn-out shock absorbers.
Uneven tyre treads
Balding spots on your car tyres could be a sign of a damaged suspension system.
