How Car Suspension Systems Function
The primary function of your car’s suspension system is to structurally support your vehicle while maintaining a comfortable ride for you and your passengers. This is done by suspension system components helping your tires maintain strong and even contact with the street by compensating for bumps, dips, sudden turns, and worst of all, potholes. These components include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, all working to absorb bounce and unexpected motion from the road’s surface.
Suspension Repair & Maintenance Services
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.
