About Suspension Struts

The Citroen suspension strut is a strong metal strut that is positioned behind the wheel with the control arm sitting either side of it. It’s bolted to the chassis at the top and the lower control arm at the bottom. The strut consists of a metal bar with a damper positioned in the middle. Over the top of this metal bar sits a coil spring which in combination with the damper acts a shock absorber and cushions the vehicle from the bumps in the roads surface to provide a smoother ride. The Citroen suspension strut also improves the performance of the coil spring by dampening the effect the springs have when dealing with shocks.

The strut also plays a key part in steering and alignment.

Damage to the Citroen suspension strut can result in ‘forward plunge.’ This is where the vehicle shunts forward when brakes are applied.

Other issues can include the vehicle rocking from side to side or being unpredictable when handling. It’s also worth noting that the ride smoothness will greatly deteriorate if the Citroen suspension strut is showing signs of wear. A quick way of checking performance is to use a ‘bounce test.’

Citroen trivia

  • The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
  • Citroën cars have been put through their paces and all in the name of advertising. Citroën vehicles have trekked huge distances for promotional reasons, including expeditions across the Sahara, throughout Africa, all over Asia, and even across Alaska.
  • Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
  • The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
  • Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
