Your car’s suspension system is responsible for its smooth functioning and for keeping the car in control. It maximises the friction between the tires and the road to provide steering stability, grip and effortless handling. The suspension system also provides comfort for passengers by limiting the impact of rugged road conditions on the passengers.

The suspension system is composed of many components, including the chassis, which holds the cab of the car. The springs support the weight of the vehicle, and absorbs and reduces excess energy from road shocks, along with that from the shock absorbers and struts. The anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilises the car.

    Importance Of Car Suspension Diggers Rest

    Your car’s suspension system must be in good condition. Apart from just the up and down motion which suspension endures using springs and shock absorbers, there are other suspension components, which concern other types of motion, such as twisting, rubbing and sideways movement. Some of these will adversely affect your driving experience depending on their condition such as bushings, sway bars, torsion bars, wishbones, ball joints, to name a few. Properly calibrated and balanced suspension allows the wheels to compensate for these rapid changes in direction, keeping your wheels and tires as close to the road as possible even when the vehicle is changing direction. This compensation aspect of suspension is called handling, and it greatly affects your car’s ability to maneuver, especially at high speed, without losing traction. Worn suspension components may reduce the stability of the vehicle and reduce driver control, as well as accelerate wear on other suspension system components. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts will help maintain good ride control, as they:

    • Provide consistent handling and braking
    • Prevent premature tire wear
    • Help keep the tires in contact with the road
    • Maintain dynamic wheel alignment
    • Control vehicle bounce, roll, sway, drive, and acceleration squat
    • Reduce wear on other vehicle systems
    • Promote even and balanced tire and brake wear
