Your car’s suspension system is designed to give your vehicle a smooth, even, stable ride. At Fawkner Tyre Mart, we advice all out customers to have their suspension checked at least once a year.
Because the suspension gets a lot of road abuse, most of the parts do wear out, and can sometimes even break. If you have noticed that your car doesn’t seem to ride like it used to, or maybe you hearing rattling or clanking noises coming up from under your car?
You should have this inspected because you may have a problem with your car suspension.
Our professionally trained technicians are experts in all suspension repairs. We only use parts that match your vehicle's original specification, and we can repair any make or model of car.
All work is guaranteed for 12 months for complete peace of mind.
Here are a few indicators that you require your steering and suspension system examined consist of:
Your shock absorbers and suspension take a lot of impact over the years, so it is a good idea to have them looked at once a year, or if you notice any strange bouncing or noises while driving on uneven surfaces or cornering.
As part of our suspension repairs, we always look at things like steering and suspension bushes and ball joints.
In addition to repairs and servicing, our dedicated team can also lower your vehicle and install new and aftermarket shocks, struts, springs, and adjustable bushes for wheel alignment requirements.
To help ensure your steering and shocks are working appropriately, a technician may examine all of your steering and suspension parts, and will also evaluate:
Each vehicle has a so called Constant Velocity (CV) axle which consists of two Constant Velocity joints. The main task of this CV axle is to transfer the torque from the engine to the wheels of your vehicle.
Your cars engine produces a lot of energy and the special mechanism is needed to deliver all this torque to your car's wheels. CV joints allow all the power to be transferred very smoothly.
When the CV joint rubber boot is cracked it can no longer protect the CV joints from dirt and moisture. This causes the joints to fail and stop working. Dirt gets into the unit which increases the wear of its parts. If you start to hear a clicking noise, this usually means that there is a crack in your CV boot.
