You're able to enjoy a comfortable and stable ride thanks to your Land Rover’s suspension system. Vehicle suspension absorbs the lumps and bumps found in every road surface, and allows you to accelerate, brake and corner safely. It also helps to keep your tyres in contact with the road, or track.
Safari Engineering understands that the suspension plays an important role in the overall performance and handling of your Land Rover. Its components and parts are considered critical safety features, and therefore must be maintained properly. Our skilled Land Rover technicians at Safari Engineering in Eversley, are experts at diagnosing and rectifying suspension related problems.
Let’s take a look at what’s involved in a typical Land Rover or Range Rover Suspension system.
Your vehicle’s suspension is made up of a number of parts including the chassis, steering, tyres and wheels. They all work together to improve the overall stability of your landy, however, the actual suspension system essentially comprises, Suspension Arms, Ball Joints, Springs and Shock Absorbers.
Most modern Land Rovers are fitted with four coil springs - one per wheel. Although, older ‘Series’ Land Rovers used leaf Springs. When you go over a bump, theses springs will compress and expand to absorb any vertical movement. The shock absorbers control the motion of the spring, which stops the car from bouncing.
The springs and shock absorbers are connected to the chassis of the Land Rover by suspension arms and ball joints. The ball joints, or swivels allow the suspension arms to articulate smoothly. Often vehicles have suspension systems that include a device called an ‘Anti-Roll Bar’, this connects the left side to the right side and helps to stop the vehicle’s the sideways tilting (roll) of the vehicle on sharp corners.
As these parts wear out or become damaged over time, you'll notice that the ride feels rougher when driving over defects in the road. Worn shock absorbers can affect your stopping distance by up to 20%, so it's really important to get any problems checked out as soon as possible.
Often, when something has broken, or worn out, you will hear and feel vibrations and knocking from your vehicle. Don’t delay, bring your vehicle to Safari Engineering’s workshop in Eversley, Hampshire, and we’ll carry out a Full Suspension Check to find out what’s causing your problems. We’ll then discuss with you the best course of action to take to rectify those problems.
Land Rover Suspension Upgrades in Eversley, Hampshire
Although your Land Rover or Range Rover was designed to be a ‘go anywhere’ Four-Wheel Drive vehicle, there are times when the standard Land Rover ‘stock’ suspension is just not going to be good enough.
As Land Rover Specialists we have over 45 years worth of knowledge and expertise in keeping your Land Rover going. Going over hills and streams. Going through forests and across deserts. Going on, no matter what’s in its way.
High lift suspension kits will give you increased ground clearance to navigate across rough terrain. Poly bush upgrade kits will give you precise handling characteristics. Or, air bag suspension upgrade kits will improve the ride of your Range Rover and smooth out the ride.
A common suspension upgrade we often perform is to remove the air bag suspension system from P38 Range Rovers and replace it with a more traditional coil spring and shock absorber system.
The EAS (Electronic Air Suspension) System found on Range Rover 4.0 and 4.6 vehicles can present expensive, recurring maintenance problems. If you've had an air spring failure before, you know this first hand. Britpart now has a coil spring conversion kit for Range Rover 4.0 and 4.6 that makes switching to coil springs seamless and error-free.
Conversion to coil springs provides a better, maintenance-free ride that will save you significant money over time. The EAS Override Module suppresses all typical false dashboard display errors and buzzers heard when converting to coil springs.
