Is your car suffering from Carthritis?  

Just like humans, your vehicle’s joints suffer wear and tear, or as we call it, “Carthritis”. In a vehicle, bushings play the role of cartilage, protecting the vital joints in your car’s suspension.


Carthritis can be a major safety issue when it comes to braking and stability.  So how do you tell if your vehicle is suffering from Carthritis?

  • You might hear noises like knocking and clunking
  • Irregular steering wheel behaviour such as vibrations or poor responsiveness
  • Inefficient braking including soft brake pedal feel or darting and wheel shudder 
  • Unpredictable stability like excess body roll during or over or understeer during cornering 
  • Premature wear of tyres due to misalignment
