Suspension and Steering

It's important to have regular checks on your suspension and steering, as often as every 6 months. Steering components can be knocked out of alignment by speed humps and potholes, and poor steering puts yourself and your family at risk of accident. The suspension's most noticeable function is creating a smooth ride for you, but suspension also has an influence on steering and drive. The main cause of suspension problems is simply time: most of the moving parts are made of rubber and can dry out and crack over a period of time. We check the suspension and steering fully as part out our routine servicing. We'll carry out repairs where necessary to make sure that you remain as safe and comfortable as possible.

Get your wheels lined up right

Your car wheels can get misaligned in different ways. Everyday driving over speed humps will eventually affect the alignment, driving against a kerb or hitting a pothole can knock a wheel out altogether. The problem can also be caused by issues with your steering or suspension. If you notice your steering wheel is misaligned, or it feels like you steering is pulling to one side your steering could do with checking to make sure its ok but it could be some thing as simple as a underinflated tyre.
