The Function of Car Suspension
The suspension system has two basic functions: to keep the car’s wheels in firm contact with the road and to provide a comfortable ride for the passengers. A lot of the system’s work is done by the springs. Under normal conditions, the springs support the body of the car evenly by compressing and rebounding with every up-and-down movement. This up-and-down movement, however, causes bouncing and swaying after each bump and is very uncomfortable for the passenger. These undesirable effects are reduced by the shock absorbers.
Your vehicle’s suspension is a vital safety issue for your vehicle.
Worn shock absorbers not only reduce driver comfort, but they can also dramatically affect the handling and safety of your vehicle.
Worn suspension components may also cause an irritating knocking noise.
If the drive of your vehicle doesn’t satisfy you, give the AA Silencers Ltd team a call and book in for your free suspension check (while you wait).

Brake Disc Cutting Service
We can also offer a brake disc cutting service if your brake discs are corroded, or worn unevenly, causing brake judder. We can give them a new lease of life by removing the wheels and refacing the discs while still fitted to the car, 4×4, van/light commercial. All we recommend is to replace the brake pads. This can save you lots of money in parts and reduced cost and labour. This is the state of the art disc cutter that only some main leading brands use, but AA Silencers Ltd strives to bring you the best, cost-effective services as a friendly independent garage.
Brake fluid changes
Brake fluid changes are recommended by most manufacturers every 2 years. Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means that any moisture it comes into contact with is absorbed by the fluid. This has the effect of lowering the boiling point of the fluid and can lead to brake fade and loss of the brake pedal.

Get in touch
Excellent service. Called these guys 15 minutes before they were closing on Saturday as car was making terrible noise and I needed it for work on Sunday. They said if I took it along they would look at it. Arrived 5 mins before closing but true to their word they looked at it and sorted it and because it was only 2 loose pins there was no charge. Very professional set up and service.
