When you bring in your vehicle for suspension services to our experts and technicians at Pitlane you get a complete system evaluation, which includes:
We thoroughly inspecting all shocks, struts, and springs for signs of wear or damage. Replacing worn, damaged, or missing steering or suspension parts that are not performing as intended.
Why are suspensions important?
Suspension systems serve a dual purpose — contributing to the car’s road holding, handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations.
How will I know there is a problem?
Symptoms of car suspension problems may include excessive bouncing and swaying, even at low speeds. The car may not sit level and may not handle well on the road. Sometimes these symptoms may be subtle and not become evident until you are in an emergency situation requiring a quick manoeuvre to avoid a collision.
- Fluid leaking out of the shock or strut body
- Shock or strut bodies are dented or damaged
- Mounts or bushings are broken or worn
- Cupped, uneven tire wear
- Vehicle sways or leans on turns
Why should I do something about it?
Worn shocks can increase the time and distance it takes you to stop your car in an emergency situation. Industry experts estimate that worn shocks add, on average of 10% to your stopping distance. At any speed, that 10% can translate to a big difference in your ability to avoid an accident.
