Suspension & Shocks In Scarborough

A car's suspension system maximises the contact between the wheels and the road surface. It also increases comfort whilst you're driving, especially on uneven surfaces.

Most vehicle manufacturers advise that a shock absorber will last around 30,000 miles. After this, a worn suspension system could contribute to uneven tyre wear and increase the wear on the suspension parts.

As the shock’s ability to resist wheel and body movement decreases, it becomes more difficult to control your vehicle. This becomes evident as stopping distances increase. Shock wear also increases the wear of other related vehicle parts, because as more suspension movement is allowed, all the parts attached to it are also subject to more movement and therefore more wear.
