SUSPENSION TYPES:

There are several suspension systems used in motor vehicles. The job of a

suspension is to soften or eliminate the uneven surfaces and bumps we drive over. A

suspension does this by absorbing the road bumps into springs and shock absorbers.

The most common suspensions can be put into several categories, coil springs on

control arms with shock absorbers, combined coil overs, torsion bars with shock

absorbers and leaf springs with shock absorbers. Suspensions also have to cope with

downward forces from vehicle braking and the upward lift from acceleration. As well as

making the ride more comfortable the suspension is designed to keep the tyre tread in

contact with the road surface irrespective of the driving conditions. The suspension

assists our braking ability and steering accuracy.

SHOCK ABSORBERS: The modern shock absorber is a complex part that has been highly developed over the last century. A simple way to think about how a shock absorber works is to imagine the difference between the pain caused by being hit in the head with a cricket ball and being hit in the head with a ripe tomato. Even though the force they hit you may be
SUSPENSION BUSHES AND BALL JOINTS: All suspensions have numerous bushes, joints and pivot points. The original manufacturer’s bushes are normally designed with comfort and noise as the most important feature. While the original bushes and joints are built well and in most cases last a reasonable amount of time most after market bushes and joints are aiming to be more driver friendly by using more rigid materials such as nolathane. If the driving conditions are severe we recommend the after market nolathane bushes as an alternative to genuine style bushes. The after market manufacturers also design and develop special bushes and suspension parts to replace some genuine parts that have a known design fault. We at UMR Engines have access to information about innovative suspension parts that are manufactured to suit some makes and models. We can diagnose and repair all suspension problems. We also offer safety and RWC inspections. UMR Engines of Slacks Creek Brisbane has highly trained technicians that can replace your suspension bushes and ball joints. Call UMR Engines Slacks Creek Brisbane for more information
SPRINGS: Springs are an important part of the suspension and they can wear out and sag. Poor springs will effect the ride and steering and should be replaced when defective. Some loading conditions and driving conditions can require better performance springs than supplied by the original manufacturer. The manufacturer has to supply a spring that gives a comfortable ride under normal conditions. If your requirements exceed normal conditions many good quality aftermarket performance springs are available. Some performance manufacturers such as King Springs, Pedders Springs, Lovells Springs and several local manufacturers make excellent products. We can supply and fit springs that suit your requirements and budget. Call UMR Engines Slacks Creek Brisbane for more information.

A simple way to think about how a shock absorber works is to imagine the difference between the pain caused by being hit in the head with a cricket ball and being hit in the head with a ripe tomato. Even though the force they hit you may be
the same, the tomato absorbs the force through it soft texture while the cricket ball dissipates the force back through your head ….ouch! So when a heavy car tyre hits a bump the resultant upwards force is absorbed through the oil or gas filled shock absorber rather than through the vehicle back to you. The complex driving conditions of cornering, acceleration, bumps and braking all exert forces that may cause the tyres to loose contact with the road, the shockie’s job is to eliminate or reduce any adverse effect from these conditions. Worn shock absorbers are responsible for abnormal wear of expensive tyres and can cause dangerous conditions when braking and cornering as your tyres may loose contact with the road. We can replace your worn shock absorbers with ones that are most suitable for your driving conditions. Call UMR Engines Slacks Creek Brisbane for all your suspension needs.
