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 makes a clunking or knocking noise from its wheels its often as a result of a:

  • Bad Ball Joint

  • Bad Tie Rods

Popular services linked to a Suspension Inspection:

Suspension Bushes Replacement

Driving down the road can be a very bumpy and uncomfortable endeavour. Suspension bushes mean that all the rattles, vibrations and bumps that are absorbed by the shock absorbers, don’t annoy you. They are also key in balancing the car and making sure it handles and stops exactly as it should.

Wheel Bearing Replacement

If you’ve ever wondered how a wheel spins independent to the rest of the car, the wheel bearing is your answer. A wheel bearing allows the non-driven wheels to spin as fast or as slow as the driven wheels like. Allowing the car to go as fast or as slow as it wants thanks to the bearings in the driven wheels, with almost no resistance from the non-driven wheels.

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.

Rear Shock Absorber Replacement

Your shock absorber comes in a long round container with a metal rod sticking out of one end. It is this rod that travels up and down through the shock absorber and manages the travel of the suspension.
