Not just about twists and roundabouts... comfort too!

Steering and suspension systems are made for the safe operation of your vehicle, a level of comfort, and ease in moving you and your loved ones from one place to another. 

Suspension

The suspension provides the cushion in your ride, absorbing the bumps and dips. Think of it as a skeletal system that ties the car together through some or all of these components:

  • Control arms

  • Sway bar 

  • Struts / Shock Absorbers

  • Springs

  • Dampeners

  • Ball joints

  • Linkages

  • Bushings

  • Airbag suspension

  • Strut mounts

Each component has a part to play in smoothing out your ride and keeping you safe and comfortable.

Regular inspection during services will ensure any components which are worn due to age or general wear and tear can be identified before causing a larger issue.
