What have you not known until now, which will
advance your operation?

Which requirements have to be satisfied before we start wheel alignment? How can you make use of the values of angles which are not aligned in the alignment process? How can you recognize externally the difference between an oil shock absorber and one with gas, a mono tube or twin tube shock absorber?

Why is this important?

The present day vehicle suspension systems have become a complex part of modern vehicles. Manufacturers tend to make modern vehicles nowadays as safe as possible, without compromising driving comfort. This has lead to an increasing number of flexible parts in the suspension system, which has made quality diagnostics of the suspension increasingly more difficult.

What is the training
like?

Component identification and function of the different types of front and rear suspension, data finding, wheel alignment, component assembly and replacement, different types of shock absorbers.
