The most important job for your suspension is to keep all four tyres in firm contact with the road, so that your steering, driving and braking systems are effective. There are many parts working in unison to ensure that your car’s suspension is doing its job. Failure to maintain your wearable chassis components can have devastating results.
Faulty or worn suspension can cause a great increase in stopping distance. In an emergency, worn or faulty shock absorbers will transfer the weight of your vehicle unevenly, causing a loss of steering and vehicle control. It could be the difference between stopping safely and crashing.
Caltex Sorell’s auto service experts will inspect all aspects of your car’s suspension system and ensure that your shock absorbers, springs and struts are in top condition so you are able to drive away with complete confidence and a smoother ride.
