Your car or vehicle suspension system is complex, made up of a series of components engineered to work together to limit the vibrations and undulations
that you get in your vehicle from driving on a standard road.The aim of a suspension system is to give a smooth, controlled and comfortable driving experience.
The main component parts of a suspension system is a coil spring and a shock absorber/damper. The spring and the shocks work together to cushion the vehicle by absorbing the impact from potholes and other minor imperfections in the road, ironing these out so you get the smoothest ride possible.
This keeps your vehicle not only stable on the road but keeps your tyres firmly in contact with the road surface for the maximum amount of time which will also help with braking.
A vehicle with worn shock absorbers can add on up to 2 metres on its braking distance when travelling at 30mph because the tyres have less contact with the road.
Keeping your car or vehicle suspension system in good order is vital if you want to maintain the optimum comfort, stability and handling of your vehicle.
