Brakes & Suspension

Brakes

Our experienced Gold Coast Mechanics can conduct a comprehensive inspection of your vehicles braking system components and advise you on any necessary repairs or services required. This ensures the best possible car performance and safety.
Brake checks are an important part of your vehicle servicing requirements, we recommend that you have your brakes inspected periodically and not just wait until you notice something is not quite right. Brake fluid should be tested on every service and replace usually every two years. It pays to have your brakes checked by a professional.

We only use quality parts and the most trusted brands, such as Valvoline fluids, Bendix brake pads, DBA, TRW and PBR brake parts, just to name a few. And when machining your vehicles brakes, we use our state-of-the-art On-Car Computerized Brake Lathe which achieves a perfect cut first time every time and all our work is guaranteed.

Suspension

 Worn shock absorbers can add as much as 20% to your stopping distance. That’s the sort of fault that can be fatal and requires immediate attention.

A vehicles suspension plays a very important role. The suspension system is designed to give you a smooth ride while maintaining excellent driving control. It is designed to maximise the friction between the tyres and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of its passengers. If you don’t service your vehicles suspension regularly, you could be in for a rough ride.
Essentially, shock absorbers do two things. Apart from controlling the movement of springs and suspension, shock absorbers also keep your tyres in contact with the ground at all times. At rest or in motion, the bottom surface of your tyres is the only part of your vehicle in contact with the road. Any time that a tyre’s contact with the ground is broken or reduced, your ability to drive, steer and brake is severely compromised.

Despite popular belief, shock absorbers do not support the weight of a vehicle.

We use only quality parts and the most trusted brands, such as Monroe, KYB, Sachs shock absorbers and Super Pro bushes just to name a few.

For all your suspension repairs our experienced Gold Coast Mechanics here at Alpine Mechanical Service can deliver a thorough inspection and report on your vehicles brake and suspension.
