Understanding Car Suspension Systems
The main point of your vehicle’s suspension system is to support your car while maintaining a smooth ride for you. This is accomplished by suspension system parts assisting your tires to maintain even contact with the asphalt by adjusting for bumps, dips, sudden turns, and worst of all, potholes. These parts 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.

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.
