- A road test to determine system performance
- Inspection of steering and suspension system

Our Suspension Services Include
The entire suspension / strut assembly is replaced, including new springs, shocks, and struts. Recommended for heavily damaged systems.
Only the shocks will be replaced. This could result from leaky valves, which allows the fluid to flow past the shock’s piston.
Struts are complete suspension assemblies that loses its natural tension properties as they fail. It is important to check them if the vehicle rattles and shakes after hitting bumps in the road.
Conventional Suspension System
Front: The wheel is attached to a spindle, which in turn is connected to upper and lower control arms through upper and lower ball joints. The vehicle’s coil spring works against one of the control arms to support the weight of the vehicle, and the shock absorber keeps the spring from continuing to bounce.
Rear: All rear suspension systems are designed to keep the rear axle and wheels in their proper position (always tracking exactly straight ahead). The rear suspension axle allows each of the rear wheels to move up and down somewhat independently from the frame.
The spring assembly must also absorb a large amount of rear end torque from acceleration (on rear drive vehicles), side thrust from turning and road shock from bumps.

McPherson Strut Suspension System
Unlike other suspension designs, in McPherson strut suspension; the telescopic shock absorber also serves as a link to control the position of the wheel. Therefore it saves the upper control arm. Since the strut is vertically positioned, the whole suspension is very compact.
For front-wheel drive cars, whose engine and transmission are all located inside the front compartment, they need front suspensions which take-up very little width of the car. McPherson strut suspension is the most suitable one..
