How a Suspension Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our mechanic will raise your car and look underneath for any signs of damage or deterioration. They will then proceed to check for excessive tyre wear, damage to the wheel bearings, springs, shock absorbers or struts. After this they will check the CV joints, and inspect the suspension arms, bars and bushes for signs of damage.

They will then quote up any repairs or replacement parts if required.

When your vehicle is making a clunking noise when you drive over bumps its often as a result of a:

  • Worn out strut
  • Worn out strut mounts
  • Worn out control-arm bushing

Popular services linked to a Suspension Inspection:

Front Shock Absorber Replacement

When you go over a bump, pothole or just a bad bit of road, rather than bouncing around your car, the shock absorbers make sure you stay comfortable. They play a massive role in ensuring you make it around corners and come to a stop. They control the weight transfer of the car and are a critical part of the suspension.

Power Steering Fluid Replacement

Your power steering pump means you don’t need arms like a gorilla to turn your car at low speeds. The power steering pump needs something to pump around to do its job. This is where power steering fluid comes in.

Power Steering Rack Replacement

The power steering rack is a critical component in the steering of your vehicle. It determines where you aim your front wheels when turning the steering wheel.

Ball Joint Replacement

Your car’s suspension is an integral part of driving, the ball joints are an integral part of your suspension system. They make sure that while your car goes over bumps, it can also turn. They’re an important part of your car and they’re something worth taking good care of.
