Suspension – Struts – Shocks – Repair HAM Rockhampton


Shocks and struts are essential parts of every vehicle, but most don’t give them a second thought until they start to notice their car isn’t handling well.

Obviously, having Suspension that function properly is something that every driver considers a priority. What you may not be aware of is the critical function that correct suspension plays in vehicle control and braking efficiency.


Obviously, having BRAKES that function properly is something that every driver considers a safety essential. You may not be aware of the critical function that correct suspension plays in vehicle control and braking efficiency.

Your suspension’s function is more than to make your drive smoother. And it is a crucial system that keeps you safe while driving. Without efficient suspension, your brakes and tyres would not respond as precisely and will decrease driving sensitivity, posing a significant safety risk.

Unfortunately, when lesser mechanics service your vehicle, they mainly focus on your engine and check a few suspension components. Most mechanics don't have the experience or tools to check your vehicle's entire suspension system—another reason to trust the care of your car to Highway Auto Rockhampton.

Tyres, Brakes and Suspension Are as One For Stopping.


This trio is what you rely on to stop when you apply the brakes. On the surface you may think that suspension wear and tear will only impact on your ride and comfort but the real danger is when the suspension loses its ability to keep your tyres in constant contact with the road and particularly on wet roads, you then become an accident waiting to happen because traction is lost.
