Efficient car suspension will help to keep your vehicle steady on the road and helps to lessen your braking distance. If your car staggers when braking, or is affected by side winds, you could have faulty suspension.
Your car's suspension system is there to subdue the effect of bumps in the road, offering the passenger a more comfortable journey. A bumpy ride could mean that your suspension needs work.
If you notice you are continuously getting uneven tyre treads, your suspension may not be holding the car evenly, causing too much strain on one area or side of the tyres.
How do you know when it's time for a suspension check?
How do you know when it's time for a professional to look at your car's suspension? Your vehicle will usually tell you. Here are six things telltale signs:
- Car rides roughly
- Drifting or pulling during turns
- Dips or "nose dives" when stopping
- Uneven tire treads
- Damaged, "oily" shocks
