So, let's cut the suspense a bit and look at how auto suspension systems work. Time to get to know the various parts that may need service or replacement to maintain the ease and integrity of your vehicle’s suspension performance.
The How & Why of Auto Suspension Systems
The main function of your vehicle’s suspension system is to provide structural support for your car while maintaining comfortable riding conditions for you and your passengers. To do this, suspension system components help your tires maintain firm and even contact with the road by compensating for bumps, potholes, dips, and sudden turns. These components include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, which all work to absorb bounce and unexpected motion from the surface of the road.

Eventually and unavoidably, the parts of your suspension system will lose integrity and break, simply over time and wear and tear. Signs you need a suspension service or repair include leaking shocks, leaking struts, dips when braking, and scraping the bottom of your car on bumps. You will probably experience bouncing, swaying, squeaking, shaking, and stiffness while driving as well; especially when you come across rough or uneven pavement. Unusual tire wear is another possible sign of your suspension problem. All these indicate the need for a suspension system inspection and diagnostic to see the exact reason of the issue and more importantly to fix it properly.
