Car suspension components we check
At the A Campbell ltd, our technicians check the following suspension components:
Cars are equipped with steel coil springs that compress and expand to absorb shocks from driving in poor road conditions. The stiffness of these springs will affect how the sprung mass or part of the vehicle supported by the spring responds while driving. Usually, loosely sprung cars like luxury vehicles “swallow” bumps to provide a smooth driving experience. On the other hand, tightly sprung cars like sports cars minimise body motion and ensure stability when accelerating.
Shock absorbers and struts
Shock absorbers and struts are crucial for providing vehicle stability when driving over potholes, speed bumps and rugged terrains. Damage to these components can lead to an uncomfortable driving experience.
Bearings, bushings and joints
They join linkage rods and provide space for them to twist and turn and improve steering responsiveness.
