Suspension & Shock Absorbers

Your car's suspension and shock absorbers are designed to maximise your tyres' friction and contact with the road to allow for efficient, safe and comfortable driving. When your suspension or shock absorbers are worn or broken, it doesn't just mean a bumpy ride, but a potentially serious safety hazard as well. 

At Goodwins we are experts at suspension and shock absorber repairs and maintenance. Bring your car in today for a high quality service at a competitive price.

  Some common signs that your suspension and/or shocks need repairing or replacing include;

  • Uneven tyre wear
  • Steering wheel vibration
  • The bonnet dips when braking
  • Car rocks and rolls over bumps
  • Car doesn't hug corner when turning
  • Takes longer to stop when braking

  Some important parts;

  • Springs - the job of the springs is to absorb energy
  • Shock absorbers - their job is to dissipate the energy absorbed by the springs. 
  • Strut - a shock absorber mounted inside a spring. Struts perform the functions of springs and shock absorbers while also providing additional structural stability to the suspension system
  • Anti-sway bars - a metal bar that spans the distance between the wheels and joins each side of the suspension together
