Your car's suspension system is responsible for smoothing out the ride and keeping the vehicle in control. Specifically, the suspension system maximizes the friction between the tires and the road to provide steering stability and good handling. The suspension system also provides comfort for passengers to limit the impact of particular road conditions on the car and the passengers riding inside.
The suspension system is made up of several components, including the chassis, which holds the car's cab. The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Finally, the anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilizes the car.
Your car's suspension system must be in good condition. Worn suspension components may reduce the stability of the vehicle, reduce driver control, and accelerate wear on other suspension system components. Replacing worn or nasty shocks and struts will help maintain reasonable ride control, as they:
Control spring and suspension movement
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

• If your wheel is hard to turn.
Why should I check my suspension?
• Good suspension keeps steering stability.
• It keeps good handling.
• It will prevent your vehicle from rolling over.
• To have a smooth and comfortable ride.
What will our technicians do when checking the suspension?
Our main priority is your safety when driving your vehicle. When looking at your vehicle's suspension our technicians will check for play (movement) in your wheels, both visually and physically. They will also investigate the rubber bushes to ensure they are not worn down. They will also check the coil springs are working correctly and if the dampers are turning freely. They will also check the bounce on your vehicle for the shocks.
After all these tests are completed, our technicians will provide your suspension repairs and get you back on the road with a smooth ride, feeling just like new.
