If you have noticed that your car is handling poorly, it might indicate a problem with your shock absorbers or suspension system.

Indicators of a issue like this are:

  • Taking longer to stop

  • Aquaplaining on wet roads

  • Making noises when turning

  • Having trouble cornering

Worn or leaking shock absorbers result in a decrease in braking distance which could cause your car to fail its WOF inspection.

Your steering mechanism is designed to be sharp and responsive, letting you respond fast to changes in driving conditions. Your purpose of your suspension, is to keep your tyres in contact with the road, eliminating road shock, providing you with a more comfortable journey.

Suspension faults creep up on you, as they develop slowly over time. As they cannot be identified by a simple visual test, they are not easily identified.

Our skilled mechanics at Hamilton Automotive understand these complexities and can expertly balance the two, providing you with the ultimate driving experience for both you and your passengers. We will check your suspension and shock absorbers on a specialised meter which identifies any faults. Leaking or worn shock absorbers can decrease braking efficiency and cause vehicles to fail WOF inspections.
