Suspension & Brakes

Car Suspension Repairs – Cheadle, Uttoxeter & Stoke on Trent

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).

Replacement Brakes and Brake Testing

Looking to buy car brakes?

AA Silencers Ltd, the independent brake specialists, supply and fit brakes for all makes and models at competitive prices.

The rigours of stop / go motoring on todays overcrowded-roads can place tremendous demands on brakes. So for maximum safety and peace of mind, it makes sense to have your brakes checked regularly. Stop at AA Silencers Ltd and our fully-trained brake specialists will be happy to provide you with a comprehensive brake inspection.

Are your brakes in working order?

When your brakes have a problem, common signs include:

  • Brake juddering when applied
  • A grinding noise when brakes applied
  • A high, hard brake pedal
  • Rear wheels locking upon braking
  • A squealing or grinding noise when braking
  • If the vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • A loss of efficiency during heavy braking or on a long descent
  • A general grinding noise when driving
  • If your car is doing any of the above don’t hesitate to call AA Silencers Ltd as soon as possible to prevent further damage and cost to your pocket.

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.

We’ve had an ongoing problem with one of our vans having an engine management light on initially the problem was a faulty turbo however a different garage had replaced it and still the engine management light was still on; we after numerous attempts at fixing the issue we decided to take the van to a Mercedes specialist in Kidsgrove who also was unable to fix the engine management light; I was on my way to AA Silencers for a separate reason and I thought I’d let them have a crack at it and I was pleasantly surprised with the results; I called them the next day when they’d had maybe 5-6 total to work on it expecting to get a rough time on when it would be ready for pick up and too my surprise they said we’ve found and rectified the problem which turned out was an incorrect installation of the replacement turbo. Still absolutely over the moon as I was expecting to be spending another £1000 or so to find the problem. Will definitely be switching all the serving to these guys because they really know there way around the higher end cars & vans (Mercedes)
