    Suspension / Shock Absorber Bushing Repair

    What is the purpose of the suspension bushing?

    Suspension bushings (also known as shock absorber bushings) are mounted on your car’s suspension and steering joints, allowing your car to drive more smoothly. They absorb bumps in the road, decrease noise and reduce vibration.

    Suspension bushings are usually made out of rubber or polyurethane. They cover suspension components, limiting movement and decreasing vibrations. Over time, suspension bushings can become worn and cracked, meaning they will need to be replaced.

     

    Symptoms of cracked suspension bushings

    There are several common symptoms of worn or cracked suspension bushings. These include:

    • Vibrating or clunking noises while driving
    • Looser steering
    • Shaking in the front of the vehicle
    • Poor vehicle handling performance

    Sometimes, faults that the driver has attributed to another suspension component are actually caused by the suspension bushings. When the bushings fail, other suspension components may start functioning abnormally.

     

    Why replace your suspension bushings?

    Damaged or cracked bushings can affect your car’s steering, making it difficult to turn correctly at higher speeds. This can create a safety hazard. Worn bushings can also make your car shake, making the vehicle less comfortable and dangerous to drive.

    Problems with your car’s suspension system may lead to it failing its next Warrant of Fitness. If you have failed your WOF due to suspension bushings, you will need to get them replaced before you can legally drive again.
