Frequently asked questions
+

What does car suspension do?

While the road ahead may seem like a smooth strip of asphalt, in truth it is anything but. Ridges, potholes, changes in camber (height difference between left and right hand side of the road) and the like are all common on our roads. Without suspension, not only would our cars shake and crash over these imperfections, but the car's tyres wouldn't maintain constant contact with the road, affecting both braking and cornering.
+

How does car suspension work?

Car suspension makes handling your car easier, safer and means a more comfortable ride. Typically, it's made up of 2 components: the spring, which absorbs the impact of a bump, and a shock absorber. The shock absorber reduces the spring's 'springiness', stopping the car from bouncing around after a bump.
+

What is a car suspension repair?

Car suspension repair typically involves fixing the car's spring or, more commonly, the shock absorber. They're a hard-working component, supporting the moving weight of the car, and over time they can develop leaking seals. This is the most common suspension repair requirement.
+

What happens if your car suspension fails?

If your suspension fails you'll notice a number of symptoms, including: squeaking or groaning noises over bumps, 'bouncing' after a bump, reduced ride quality or uneven ride height, where one corner of the car rides higher or lower than another.
+

What are common signs of a power steering problem?

Indicators of a power steering problem include: a squealing noise when steering, a whining noise (from the power steering pump) when steering, steering that varies in resistance (sometimes difficult, sometimes not, often jerking between the two). If you can examine the power steering fluid, it should be red. If it is dark, or grey, you may have an issue.
+

What does Suspension Repair typically cost?

A simple suspension repair such as replacement shock absorber can come in at under £100. However more complex work, particularly involving air-sprung or hydraulic suspension, will be considerably more involved. Compare quotes to make sure of a fair price.
+

What does Steering Repair work typically cost?

Good news: simple solutions such as wheel alignment or wheel balancing begin at under £20! As with any repair, post your job and you'll quickly get a sense of what's involved and the cost.
+

What does it means when my steering wheel is shaking?

Steering wheel shake can be caused by several issues, including incorrect wheel balancing (the small weights attached to the rim of each wheel), incorrect tracking (the alignment of all 4 wheels), a power steering problem, or other, less common, issues. It needs inspection by a qualified mechanic.

Steering and Suspension Repair and Pricing

Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about the steering and suspension systems. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide and video to help you understand the subject in greater detail.

The steering and suspension in your car make it possible to control your vehicle and make the ride comfortable.

These two systems are connected and work in tandem which is why they are grouped as one job type by mechanics.

I Need Car Steering Repair

Today there are two basic types of steering systems; Standard Mechanical / Rack and Pinion steering.

The major difference between the two is that the Rack and Piston system has less parts and pivot points, which results in more accurate control and higher responsiveness.

However, this system has a higher chance of leakage which means the steering rack assembly typically requires replacement more often than Standard Mechanical steering.

I Need Car Suspension Repair

Suspension is essentially the shock absorbing part of a car which allows your car to keep its wheels in firm contact with the road while maintaining traction, it also helps provide passengers with a comfortable ride.

The suspension in your car is mainly comprised of springs and shock absorbers which come in all shapes and sizes depending on the vehicle.

Suspension removes a huge amount of vibration and bumps from a car as well as internal noise, so it will be noticeable if something is broken!

Even if your car drives smoothly and comfortably it is always a good idea to have the steering and suspension checked at least once a year.

There are many forces being applied to your steering and suspension as you drive along which means the two systems can be subject to stress from every angle. This means there are many areas which could be affected by driving.

Steering and Suspension Maintenance Tips

To help you understand more, here are common problems and their likely causes;

Why does My Car Lean to One Side?

  • My Car Tyres Are Worn Down
  • Steering linkage loose or worn out
  • One brake is dragging/isn’t released
  • Wheels aren’t aligned
  • Tire pressure uneven
  • My Car Steering Wheel is Vibrating

  • Warped or damaged brake rotors/ drums
  • Loose wheel lug nuts
  • Out of balance wheel and tire assemblies
  • Loose steering linkage
  • Bent or damaged wheels
  • Worn/damaged tires
  • Why is My Car Wheel Hard to Turn?

  • Low tire pressure
  • Wheels out of alignment
  • Power steering box/rack/power steering pump damaged
  • Low fluid in power steering
  • Power steering drive belt damaged
  • Steering gear requires lubrication
  • Why Does My Car Make a Noise When Turning a Corner

  • Steering belt damaged/loose
  • Fluid in the power steering has air which needs to be bled from the system
  • Low fluid in power steering
  • Loose/damage steering mounts
  • What Causes Loose Car Steering?

  • Steering linkage is worn out or loose
  • Steering box needs to be turned
  • What Causes a Bouncy Car?

  • Worn out shock absorbers
  • Broken or bent shock mounts
  • What Causes Power Steering Problems?

  • No fluid in the power steering system
  • Faulty power steering pump
  • Broken steering belt
  • Contaminated fluid in power steering
  • Low tire pressure
  • What Causes a Wandering Car?

  • Weight within the car is unevenly distributed
  • Wheels out of alignment
  • Weak springs
  • Loose steering linkage
  • What Causes Steering Wheel Jerks?

  • Steering drive belt damaged/loose
  • Low fluid in power steering
  • Engine idling too low
  • Power steering linkage rubbing against something
  • Rear Shocks and Front Shocks

    The suspension system includes the front and rear shock absorbers or front shocks and rear shocks as they are known to repair specialists.

    Rear shocks reapir will usually include replacing the coil springs if there is an issue with the absorbers. Once the shock absorbers or rear shocks lose their effectiveness in absorbing vibrations from the road there is not a lot a mechanics can do to repair the part.

    Typically, a technican will replace the front and rear shocks if there is a problem as this is the best way to resolve an issue.

    The cost of replacing rear shocks and the cost of replacing front shocks may change from one garage to the next as they may buy different brands and they may have their own deals with parts suppliers, however, the cost of new shocks should not be huge.

    It is absolutely vital that you pay attention to your car and make sure to keep this information in mind.

    If you ignore the signs that your car is showing, you are taking a safety risk.
