Has the ride in your vehicle gotten less smooth? Having issues with the control of your car? Passengers complaining about a bumpy ride? When it comes to your vehicle, the suspension system is highly important. The suspension system of your vehicle is responsible for the smoothness of the ride, limiting the impact of various road conditions that can result in a bumpy experience. The suspension system also helps with control of the vehicle, maximizing the friction between the road and tires of your car. Good handling and stability can also be attributed to the suspension system of your vehicle. 

About The Suspension System

A car’s suspension system is actually made from several components which includes the chassis which is responsible for holding the cab of the car. Springs, struts and shock absorbers in the suspension system helps to support the weight of the vehicle and absorb/reduce any shock from the road. The anti-sway bar stabilizes the vehicle and shifts the movement of the wheels.
