There are many benefits to having high quality air springs in your vehicle such as ensuring better car balance, better tyre wear, better fuel consumption and a more comfortable driving experience. Below we have listed some tips on how to identify if your car airspring needs to be assessed for replacement.
How to identify if your air strut needs to be replaced:
- Pay attention to the roughness of your ride.
- Pulls or squeaks during turns should be taken note of.
- Examine whether the threads are experiencing excessive or irregular wear.
- Try braking abruptly to see if your vehicle nose dives as you stop.
- Inspect if the vehicle sits level.
Shock & Strut Warning Signs:
1. Excessive Bouncing:
Within your vehicles suspension system there are coil springs which are located between the wheels and the frame of the vehicle. On the other hand struts are in essence a coil spring and shock absorber all in one piece. Regardless of whether you have shocks or struts when you drive over a bump, your car bounces on the coil springs. In both cases the shock absorbers stop your car from bouncing constantly. So it is an indication that you require a shock or strut replacement if you drive over a bump or a patch of rough road and your vehicle continues to bounce.
2. Nose Dives/Rear End Squats Dipping:
Your vehicle should be constantly steady and stable whether you are accelerating, braking or turning so that you can keep maximum control as you drive.?The car is held steady through the shocks and struts.
If the front-end of your vehicle, otherwise known as the nose, of your car dives when braking, it is an indication that replacement shocks and struts may be needed or at least considered. if the rear end of your vehicle ?squats? when you accelerate this could be another indication that your shocks or struts require service. Additionally, your shocks or struts may need to be replaced if you make a turn and the vehicle dips drastically to one side.
3. Tire “Cupping”
The tires will literally bounce up and down as you drive if the struts or shocks on your vehicle are bad. Bits of rubber get scraped off the tire each time it bounces off the ground. It?s frequently referred to as cupping or scalloping. So instead of having a consistent tread wear pattern across the tire, you might have some tread, a smooth patch, some tread, a smooth patch, and so on. This is because the holes left by the missing rubber tend to get smoothed over as you drive.
4. Leaking Fluid
Inside every shock and strut is a piston and hydraulic fluid. When you drive over a bump or a rough stretch of road, the shocks or struts compress, causing the piston to push against the hydraulic fluid, which absorbs the force of the piston. Sometimes that fluid can leak out of the shock or strut. Believe it or not, a little leakage is perfectly normal and will look like a small wet spot on an otherwise dry shock or strut. Leakage that you need to concerned about will make most of the shock or strut look wet and oily.
