Steering & Suspension
At Samko we specialise in steering and suspension work. We can inspect and replace coil springs, shock absorbers, top strut mount bearings, lower control arms and much more. After replacing these components we finish off with a hunter wheel alignment to make sure the car geometry is reset to manufactures specifications.
Common signs of suspension failure.
Your suspension system works hard, to ensure driving comfort by smoothing out the bumps in the road and providing traction by keeping the wheels on the ground as much as possible. Here are some common signs of suspension problems.
Pulling to one side when driving
Feeling every bump
One corner sits lower than the others
Diving, rolling and/or squatting
Difficulty when steering
Driving a car with a broken or damaged suspension system is like walking with a broken leg. It will feel unbalanced and unstable, which can cause you to lose control of your car or worse.
Your suspension system provides driving comfort by smoothing out bumps in the road and traction by keeping the wheels on the ground as much as possible. Over time, parts of your suspension could wear out or break completely. If this happens, is it still safe to drive your car?
In general, the damaged or worn part will need to be repaired or replaced before your car is driven. However, this can vary depending on the part that is broken.
