Suspension & Shock Absorbers Free Check-up
Get a thorough inspection of your shock absorbers & suspension at no cost. You receive a written report on all suspension components along with recommendations.
Does your car have any of these symptoms:
- Not absorbing road bumps & shocks
- Wheels bouncing excessively
- Stopping distance increasing
- Nose diving on braking
- Steering wheel vibration
- Car veers in strong winds
- Rocks and rolls over bumps
- Not hugging the bends
- Uneven tyre wear
Although all shock absorbers do the same job, different types of vehicles and suspension designs require different types of shock absorbers which can appear radically different.
Having brakes that function properly is something that every driver considers a priority. What you may not be aware of is the critical function that shock absorbers and suspension generally plays in vehicle control and braking efficiency. So, poor suspension means poor brakes.

This trio is what you rely on to stop when you apply the brakes. On the surface you may think that suspension wear and tear will only impact on your ride and comfort but the real danger is when the suspension loses its ability to keep your tyres in constant contact with the road and particularly on wet roads, you then become an accident waiting to happen because traction is lost therefore brakes are lost.
