Common questions about checking and repairing the suspension and control arms

How do I detect malfunctions in the car suspension system and control arms?

The failure of even a single element negatively affects the vehicle’s steerability: the car pulls to one side and there is body roll when turning corners and braking. Knocks can be heard from the suspension, and the tyres wear unevenly or abnormally fast. The wheels cannot be aligned. Inspection may show free play of parts, and cracks in dust covers or boots.

How can I repair my suspension system and control arms myself?

You can replace ball joints, steering tie rods and tie rod ends, CV joints, control arms, shock absorbers, wheel hub bearings, stabilizer mounts and bushes, transmission and engine mounts yourself. To do this, raise the car, remove the wheel and, if necessary, the hub. Clean the mounting seats. When tightening the fasteners, be sure to observe the prescribed torque. After finishing the job, you’ll need to have the wheels aligned at a garage.

What happens if I don’t repair the suspension system and control arms in my car?

Ignoring a malfunction of the suspension and control arms results in faulty operation of the steering and brake systems, and the transmission. In addition, this will impair the stability of the car when driving on rough roads and turning corners, and lead to uneven wear of the tyre tread. If you drive a car with damaged control arms there is also a risk of the wheels coming loose.
