What does my car's suspension system do?
Your car’s suspension system deals with the potholes and imperfections in the road so that you can have a smoother, more comfortable ride. If our paved roads were completely smooth, there would not be a need for a suspension system on a car, but because even a newly paved road has uneven areas, our vehicle’s suspension systems are necessary.
When the tires in your car hit a bump in the road, it sends your vehicle airborne with vertical acceleration. Depending on how fast your car is moving, or how large the bump is, your tires – and your car – could completely leave the pavement! That is where the suspension system comes in, absorbing some of the vertical acceleration energy and stabilizing your vehicle so you do not feel every bump or divot as much. It also helps provide steering stability and good handling, increasing your safety on the road.
What car parts are in the suspension system?
Your car’s suspension system is made up of several main parts that make up the chassis. Most of these parts are located under the car’s body, and include the vehicle’s frame, tires and wheels, coil springs, air springs, torsion bars, shock absorbers, struts, control arms and linkage to the steering system. There are different variations of the suspension system so it is important that you bring your vehicle to an auto repair shop in Phoenix that knows how to handle the suspension system on your specific automobile.
How do I know if I need to have my shocks or struts replaced?
Shocks and struts are two of the main components of your car’s suspension system. If you find that you are having trouble controlling your vehicle on the road and it is not driving as smoothly as it used to, it is a good idea to take it to your trusted auto repair shop right away. Some things to look out for:
- The front of your car dips forward when you are applying the brakes
- Your vehicle sways or drifts too much when going around a turn
- You feel like you have less control over your automobile while driving
- The back of your vehicle scrapes the pavement after going over a bump
