Is there a problem with my suspension?

Here are some warning signs to look out for if your suspension is in need of repairs:

  • Difficulty steering
  • Bumpy car rides with no obvious cause such as speed bumps or potholes or extended bouncing after hitting these
  • A drifting or pulling to one side when turning corners
  • Uneven wear on tyres
  • One corner of the car sits lower

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or have any other concerns with your vehicle suspension system, just phone or call in to your nearest Formula One Autocentre for your free suspension check.

How does car suspension work?

Your vehicle's suspension is comprised of a complex list of components including linkages, dampers, absorbers and springs - all working together to redirect vibrations and absorbing the road impact. Find out more in our comprehensive guide to car suspension. Learn more about what car suspension is from our handy guide.

  • Very helpful. Replaced my tyres and found another problem which they were able to fix the next day for me aswell. Very friendly people too.

  • Louis and his team are a credit to you. Two front tyres purchased after a couple of options talked through with Louis. I booked everything on-line, arrived at my specified date/time, car was started on time and my car was treated with care. I took advantage of the free wheel alignment check, all fours wheels were out, quote received and all four wheels re-aligned. Such great service, I've been here before with a previous car, two new front tyres and and puncture repair on another occasion. I can't fault the team, I'll be back.
