The main functions
The suspension is in charge of damping the body’s movements while maintaining the tires on the ground, whatever the circumstances are : braking, acceleration, going round corners etc…). Their role is very important for your comfort and safety.
The wear and tear signs
Some oil leaks, the feeling that the vehicle is bouncing up and down, difficulties in keeping the vehicle in a straight line while driving are some important signs that the suspension needs to be replaced.
Driving with a poor suspension has a direct impact on your safety : the braking distances can be pushed a further 35%, premature wear of tires, road holding degradation, loss of control in corners, aquaplaning and poor comfort levels.
At 20 000 km, a shock absorber has been used more than 1 million times! A checkup every 20 000 km is recommended. The two shock absorbers on the same axle have to be replaced together. Using genuine spare parts is necessary to maintain your suspension’s performances.
