When to Get a Service
An important part of keeping all aspects of your vehicle working properly is to stick to your regular Log Book servicing schedule. However, if you notice any of the following symptoms you should get your vehicle checked out as soon as possible;
- Steering Wheel Vibration/pulsing
- Nose diving and swerving – bonnet dips when braking or slowing down
- Car veers in side winds
- Makes a rattling noise
- Uneven or overly excessive tyre wear
- Car rocks and rolls over bumps and doesn’t hug bends when cornering
- Clunking over bumps
- Bouncing, dipping and diving
Some of your suspension & shock absorber's important parts include
- Springs – Springs are designed to absorb energy and there are several different types including leaf, coil, torsion bar or air assisted springs. The springs on different types of cars will be set up to different levels. Luxury cars, for example, may have soft springs to produce a smoother ride but this results in more body movement when the car brakes and corners. Sports cars, on the other hand, tend to have tighter springs which allow for more aggressive driving, including around corners, but also mean a less smooth ride.
- Shock absorbers - these dissipate the energy absorbed by the springs. The car would not work properly without the shock absorbers because the springs would cause it to bounce up and down when you go over a bump rather than absorb that bump.
- Strut - this is a shock absorber mounted inside a coil spring. Struts do the job of the springs and shock absorbers plus provide additional structural support for the suspension system.
- Anti-sway bar - spans the width of the axle and joins the two sides of the suspension together to provide stability to the car while it is moving.
