Time to get to know the various parts that may need service or replacement to maintain the ease and integrity of your vehicle’s suspension performance.
The How & Why of Auto Suspension Systems
The main job of your car’s suspension system is to structurally support for your vehicle while it maintains a comfortable riding condition. It does this by using suspension system components built to help tires maintain firm even contact with the road. Vehicle suspension compensats for bumps, potholes, dips, and sudden turns. Components include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, all working together to absorb bounces and unexpected motion from the road's surface.

Eventually, the parts of your suspension system will wear down and malfunction, simply due to time. Signs you need suspension service include leaking shocks and struts, heavy dives when stopping, and bottoming out on driveways and speed bumps. You'll probably experience bouncing, swaying, squeaking, shaking, and stiffness while driving, especially when encountering rough uneven road. Irregular tire wear is another potential sign of a suspension problem. All these symptoms indicate the need for a suspension system inspection and diagnostic to determine the exact cause of the issue and to fix it correctly.
