Suspension is an important part of your cars safety and comfort. Generally speaking suspension parts wear well but there are a few areas that require attention as cars move past the 50,000 mile mark.

Drop link suspension arms are an inexpensive and relatively simple linkage which when worn can result in a noisy uncomfortable suspension. Also shock absorbers can fail resulting in an unstable suspension.

CarDock review your suspension for wear at every service and will be able to replace your suspension parts as required.


  • Drop link arms are a simple steel arm that connects the anti roll bar to the wheel bearing. If they are worn you will hear and feel a looseness and clattering sound in your suspension. They can be replaced for as little as €80 euros and you will notice a huge difference in the driving comfort of the car.

  • Shock Absorbers

    Shock absorbers are a lot more reliable than in years gone by. When they fail, they leak hydraulic fluid which can be seen around the shock absorber(more easily seen with the wheel taken off).

    They can also be tested by pushing down on each corner of the car and seeing if the car bounces up steadily. If it bounces up quickly and then goes down again the shock absorber is not doing it’s job.
