Suspension

Please Note: We have nothing to do with maeco shock absorber, we do not have any contact details for them.

A vehicles suspension is the system of springs, shockabsorbers, bushes and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and the road surface. Suspension systems serve a dual purpose - contributing to the vehicles road handling, braking, safety and driving pleasure. The tuning of a vehicles suspension is critical and involves finding the right compromise to provide steering stability with good road handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers.

• Shocks and struts wear out and affect your vehicles road handling ability. If your car bounces excessively over bumps or body rolls hard into corners, or Leaking oil; this is a sure sign of a worn shock or strut.

• Ball joints. Ball joints wear and can cause your cars steering to wander. This is dangerous as they can separate and cause you to lose control.

Some Suspension Facts

Q: If I lower my vehicle do I need to change the shocks?
A: This depends upon the individual vehicle & the amount you wish to lower the vehicle. Our trained staff can advise you on your requirement.

Q: I have bought lowered springs but they are the same height (or taller) as the old ones when I stand them next to each other, does this mean I have been sold the wrong ones?
A: Not necessarily many springs are progressive rate and are designed to remain captive in the standard spring seats therefore they they are the same or similar height when unloaded but will be lower when the weight of the vehicle is lowered on to them.

Q: I have fitted 1 inch lowered springs and now my vehicle now sits higher?
A: Lowered spring height is calculated from the standard factory height, if your old springs have saged or the original springs been previously replaced you may not achieve the reduction in height you require, that is why it is prefered to bring your vehicle or provide a required hub to guard measurement. This allows our experienced staff to provide you with the correct springs the first time.
