Bridgestone Select NZ - Suspension

By: Bridgestone Select  05-Apr-2012

Smoothing the road with the suspension system

The most important task for your suspension is to keep all four tyres in constant contact with the road, so that the steering, driving and braking systems work efficiently. A good suspension system will give us a smooth and comfortable ride while driving, even if we take a bumpy road.

More seriously, if your vehicle’s suspension becomes worn out or has defective parts, your car could be no longer safe to drive.

How do you spot any suspension problems?

The usual telltale signs of damage or wear to the suspension include a general lack of control when cornering or braking and any unusual sideways movement.

You should always get your system checked if:

·          Your vehicle slides or fails to hug the road on bends.

·          Unusual tread wear on your tyres.

·          Your vehicle nosedives when braking.

·          Oil seeps out of your shock absorbers.

·          You experience driving instability in side winds.

·          Your steering wheel vibrates while driving.
