On the suspension system there are many moving parts, many of these components are made of rubber. Over time and the rubber can crack and perish. In the worst situation the rubber components can split and stop functioning as intended. Coil springs sometimes break, meaning that they stop functioning and in the worst cases they could become dislodged and stick in to the tyre.

Some symptoms of suspension faults are:

  • When travelling along uneven surfaces, i.e. speed humps or bumpy roads, a knocking noise may be heard from either end of the vehicle and the ride in the vehicle may be "different".
  • On a straight road, i.e. a motorway, if one side at the front of the vehicle there is a defective component, the vehicle will drift or pull to the defective side.
  • There may be a knocking noise when you start off from a stand still.

Teversham Motors has the skill and equipment to diagnose suspension faults and correct them.

An important part of the suspension is the shock absorbers, these are usually hydraulic or gas filled. They are essential to control the bounce on the vehicle and to ensure the tyres are kept firmly on the road. Damaged and worn shock absorbers can reduce the braking efficiency, cause poor cornering and tyre wear and increased stopping distances.

Keeping the suspension system to an optimum can save on tyre wear, reduce stopping distances and generally improve ride and safety of a vehicle. Teversham Motors will check the suspension as part of your service routine. Our trained and fully experienced technicians ensure your peace of mind.
