Steering and Suspension

Steering and Suspension

The steering system on every car is very important and requires regular maintenance to keep it at an optimum standard. The steering rack on all motor vehicles is easily knocked out of alignment by speed bumps and potholes in the road. When the wheel alignment becomes out of line the tyres will wear unevenly on either edge of the tyre walls.

The suspension system is a vital part of a vehicle; it has a direct impact on the steering, road holding and braking capabilities of the car.

The suspension system has many moving parts, the main component of which is rubber that can dry out over a period of time and can crack and perish. In the worst situation the rubber components can split. It is very important to have regular checks on your vehicle, whether it is every 6 or 12 months, to ensure that the ride comfort and suspension system are kept at an optimum level
