Check suspension components

  • Any "walking beam" type heavy vehicle suspension has signs of damage to beam;
  • Springs are cracked, broken or missing;
  • Air bags leak or sag;
  • Leaves in a leaf spring are displaced sideways more than 10% of their width or so that they contact wheels, brakes or the frame;
  • Shock absorbers, if originally fitted, are missing, loose, inoperative or leak;
  • Any suspension component is not correctly aligned or is damaged, loose or broken;
  • Any nut, bolt or locking mechanism is insecure or missing.
