Suspension update on my Wagon R

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a Wagon R 2008 vxi. Its preowned and I am driving since last November. Two different mechanics & the service center told me that the front suspension needs work. Being a new driver, i cant really tell. But the car does wobble a bit at very low speeds & the ride is a bit noisy in general. My regular mechanic told me the job is not urgent. So my question is, how do i know when its time to update the suspension?

The most crude and practical method of telling if the shock absorbers are working fine is, get to one side of the front of your car, now the press the left-front of your car bonnet to he maximum possible and release your hand quickly, if shock absorber is working fine then the left-front bonnet of your car will come to the original position with some delay, the reason is that the dashpot in the shock absorber will come into action and will not allow the spring to snap back in its original position instantly. I hope you got the point, let us know if this helped.
