Suspension safety checks, servicing & upgrades
Owning a 4WD usually requires a little more understanding and know-how when it comes to your suspension. For some this will not be necessary as you may never leave the tarmac, for others the thought of rugged terrain is a challenge that needs to be conquered. At Everything Automotive we understand the requirements of your 4WD's suspension and the beating it receives when you take it off-road. Owning 4WD's ourselves and going bush every chance we get is part of our passion for the job we do. We know there are unpredictable moments that your suspension needs to operate beyond it's performance limit in order to get you and your family home safely.
Our 4WD servicing is a lot more in depth than typical on-road vehicle servicing. We fully test and check each component of your suspension, provide you with a full report and offer expert advice on everything from any issues we discover to necessary repairs and even upgrades to get more from your 4WD's suspension next time you go off-road. Call us or drop into our Woree workshop and discuss your 4WD needs with our expert mechanics.
Full diagnosis & safety check of your 4WD steering & suspension
We do recommend that you bring your vehicle in for a service before any big off-road trips to ensure your safety as best we can, or at least prepare you for any issues your vehicle may be likely to encounter based on it's condition. Remember that it is better to be prepared for the worst situation and not require it, than run into the worst situation and have no preparation at all.
- A full steering check
- Suspension components
- Joints & bushes
- Nuts, bolts, control arms & chassis check
- Axles, bearings & diffs
Whether you have power steering, electric assisted steering or good old fashioned linkage only steering we will check it thoroughly and look for any leaks, rattles and looseness or play. We start at the steering wheel and systematically work our way down to the wheels covering hoses, fluid reservoirs, worm drive, tie rods and ball joints.
Your shocks, struts, springs, torsion bars and control arms are all very important components. We check them all for wear and tear, stress, damage and leakage, ensuring that your 4WD maintains it's peak performance.
Joints need to maintain their integrity and as such require plenty of the right kind of grease. We check and replenish all your greasable joints and replace any worn bushes with high quality Super Pro polyurethane bushes which are cheaper and quite often last much longer than the OEM standard ones.
When you are off-road there is no such thing as a smooth ride. Every jolt, rattle and bump can have the effect of loosening your nuts and bolts throughout your vehicle. Also the added stress of crushing drops, bumps and scrapes can twist, crack and warp your rails and supports.
Apart from your shocks, struts and springs these parts take most of the pain when off-road. We ensure they are topped up, fully greased, free moving and ready for more.
Parts that have broken once or twice before should either be carried as spares or upgraded! If we notice any excessive damage or wear we will make a note of it and ascertain why the components are under so much stress. This may involve a discussion with you as to what kind of use your car normally undergoes. If the wear is not from a defective part we may suggest an upgrade to the component/s to ensure greater longevity and performance in the future. We are also able to discuss and implement any upgrades to your suspension you may wish for your own performance preferences.
