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, 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.
