Axles, Wheels, Tires and Suspension System
Axles and Half-Trains
- The vehicle may drift to the right or left and have poor road handling.
- Vibrations or unusual noises may occur when braking or driving especially at high speed.
- Faulty axles and half-trains will also cause abnormal and rapid wear of tires and mechanical elements such as shock absorbers.
- Accidents may occur.
Triangle and Suspension Arm
- In the event of breakage, the wheel will touch the chassis and a loss of control of the vehicle may occur.
Ball Joints or Articulations
- If these components are excessively damaged, the front suspension could come apart causing loss of control of the vehicle.
- Road holding and comfort may be decreased if shock absorbers are damaged.
- Loss of control of the vehicle can occur.
- The braking distance of the vehicle can increase.
- If the anti-roll bar is deformed or incorrectly fitted, the road holding may be lowered.
- A loss of control of the vehicle will occur if this component breaks while driving.
Spring, Torsion Bar
- The failure of these components might cause a loss of control of the vehicle.
- Vehicle handling might be affected if these components are damaged.
- A loss or blocking of the wheel may occur.
- The vehicle’s behavior may be changed if the rigid axle is damaged or incorrectly fitted, which will increase the risk of accident.
- Corrosion or cracks can cause a sudden failure leading to a sudden loss of control.
Tires and Rims
- Inaccurate guidance of the vehicle may occur if the rims are deformed.
- A wheel can come off the vehicle if it is insecurely fitted.
- If tires are deformed or worn, there is a risk of a burst tire and loss of control of the vehicle.
- Unsuitable mounting, wrong dimensions or characteristics may change the vehicle’s behavior and cause a burst tire.
- Friction can cause premature wearing of these components and lead to a burst tire.
