Your vehicle's suspension is very complex with many components working hand in hand including, shock absorbers, springs, ball joints, tie rod ends and suspension bushes. These must be kept in good condition to ensure your safety. It only takes one part of the suspension system to become worn or damaged for suspension issues to occur, potentially putting your safety at risk.

- Your car dips forward when braking
