The Advantages of Air Suspension

posted in: Advice | 1

Most vehicles are equipped with a metal suspension system, composed of coil and leaf springs. Air Suspension replaces these steel components with heavy-duty rubber airbags that can be inflated using either an in-vehicle or external air compressor. Air suspension systems have several advantages over more traditional mechanical springs.

Easily Adjust Ride Height/Level

The most important benefit of an air system is that it allows the owner to easily adjust the ride height and level of his vehicle. Because the level of suspension can be matched to the load that is being pulled, the vehicle is made more adaptable and safety is improved. With a fitted in-vehicle compressor, this change can be made almost instantly. With conventional leaf and coil suspensions, a great deal of time, work and mechanical know-how would be required to switch out the parts before transporting heavy loads. The ability to easily adjust air suspension also makes it easy to tow trailers, as it sits with the pitch of the trailer.

Improved Handling

Because of their adaptability, vehicles that are equipped with airbag suspension systems can be driven over a variety of terrains while maintaining a smoother ride and better handling. This is achieved because an air spring feed off a closed volume of air. The increase and decrease in pressure caused by travelling over rough surface can create a natural tendency for the vehicle (and airbag) to return to its normal height. Not only does this quality stop the vehicle from bottoming-out, it also gives the driver a better feel for the road ahead of them.

Other Advantages

Because air suspensions improve handling and provide the ability to adjust for load weights and trailers, tire wear is reduced. Therefore, switching to an air suspension system will save money in the long run as you spend less for tires, in addition to other components such as axles and tie-rods, that may be affected by inferior leaf-and-coil suspensions. This smoother ride offered by airbags also will result in a steady, constant beam of headlights, further improving safety. Those in favour of street modifications will find that an airbag suspension system also is effective in creating a low-rider look.

Air suspension systems also have a hidden advantage in that they benefit the roads on which you drive. Specifically, this refers to the air suspension systems equipped on large commercial vehicles. Vehicles equipped with low-stiffness springs, such as airbags, are more kerb friendly than stiffer, metal springs. In the end, this means fewer potholes and less money spent on road improvement.

10 ways to look after your car in Winter

posted in: Car Care | 16

Frozen Car

 

It’s here. The big freeze. Winter is rearing its chilly head and our cars are going to be put to the test in this most gruelling of seasons. But fear not, there are a few things you can do to ensure your car doesn’t fail you this Christmas.

Check your tyres – Look at their condition, pressure and tread (3mm is recommended for Winter driving). Also, don’t believe the myth that reducing tyre pressure improves grip; it doesn’t and in fact can make your car even more unstable.

 

Check your fluid levels – Check your motor oil, brake fluids and water levels. Keep them topped up and add antifreeze to your washer fluid to prevent freezing.

 

Check your battery – Your battery is put under a lot of strain over Winter. With heaters on full and lights being used more often, make sure it is fully charged and able to manage the extra work. It is recommended to change your battery every five years, so if it is getting close to it invest in a new one to be safe.

 

Check your windscreen – Make sure there are no cracks or chips, and keep it clean. This may sound an odd one, but with the low sun in this season it can reduce visibility, and a dirty windscreen is only going to make things worse.

 

Windscreen wipers – It may seem obvious, but on a busy frosty morning it’s easy to forget about your windscreen wipers. Always make sure to lift them off your windscreen before using them, to ensure they aren’t stuck. Using an ice-welded wiper can cause damage to them.
No hot water – This is a classic Winter must, or must not as it were. Don’t use hot or boiling water (however tempting) to clear frost from your windows. It can re-freeze quickly and cause your windows to crack.

 

Clear your vision – Again seems obvious, but when in a hurry a lot of us can’t wait for that windscreen to clear. Don’t just leave a small hole for vision and hope for the best, wait till all windows are clear and don’t forget your mirrors. Using de-icer can speed up the process a lot quick than just scraping.

 

Don’t rush! – Ice is treacherous. Once you’ve lost control it is very hard to come back from it. Take your time and leave plenty of space between you and other cars.

 

Emergency kit – Stock your car up with an emergency Winter kit. This includes a first aid kit, high-visibility vest and warning triangle. A blanket and snow spade could also come in handy if stranded in particularly snowy weather.

 

Keep your fuel tank full – This is a little known, but very important tip for the Winter months. Keep your fuel tank topped up, as condensation from the changing temperatures can sink to the bottom. If your red warning light comes on, this water can reach your fuel line and freeze meaning very bad news!

 

It’s easy to keep your car running in the cold Winter.
