Why is suspension so important?
A car’s suspension supports the entire weight of the vehicle and allows it to ride smoothly over rough roads. It allows a vehicle to turn safely and maintain stability during emergency manoeuvres.
The vehicle suspension also maximises the friction between the tyres and the tarmac. Technically, the car tyres are also a part of the suspension. The suspension comprises of various components like the chassis, damper springs, anti-sway bars, and struts.
A defect on any of these components will compromise your car’s performance and reduce driving control, leaving you exposed to danger. So, heading for a timely suspension repair in Fenham will keep you safe.
When to opt for a suspension repair?
- Rough and tumultuous ride
When every minor bump on the road causes significant vibration on your car’s body, you need to head over to a garage for a suspension service garage in Fenham.
- Car drifting during turns
A failing suspension system won't be able to keep a vehicle stable against the centrifugal forces during a turn. As a result, you drive with an increased risk of rollover. When this is the case, you'll feel your car drifting or pulling towards the wrong direction during turns.
- Intense nose dives when stopping
With dysfunctional shocks, you’re likely to experience your vehicle body lurching forward and downward when applying the brakes firmly. Faulty parts can increase a car’s stopping time by 20%.
- Uneven tyre treads
Uneven tread erosion on your tyres can be due to faulty suspension parts. Localised worn-out spots can be a sign that the suspension isn’t distributing the pressure on the tyres evenly.

Which suspension parts commonly requires maintenance?

- Shocks and struts that don’t have enough tension
With time, shocks and struts are bound to become ineffective. If your car’s ground clearance is lower in on one side, it means you need to avail a suspension repair in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
- Damaged tie rods
