How Do Shock Absorbers and Suspensions Work?

The suspension connects the frame of the vehicle to the wheels. The suspension contributes to the handling characteristics of the vehicle and the comfort of the passengers inside the car. The springs and struts or shock absorbers, absorb bumps in the road and keep the body of the vehicle stable under breaking and acceleration conditions. So if you are noticing that you can feel every bump on the road then it may be time to replace your suspension.

How to detect the warning signs in your suspension.

Some of the signs that there are problems with your suspension or shock absorbers include:

  • The car not sitting level when parked.
  • A lot of bouncing while you drive (feeling every bump on the road)
  • Poor handling.
  • Excessive body roll on corners.

Why is your car’s suspension so important?

Your car’s suspension system is responsible for smoothing out the ride and keeping the car in control. Specifically, the suspension system maximizes the friction between the tires and the road to provide steering stability and good handling. The suspension system also provides comfort for passengers to limiting the impact of particular road conditions to not only the car but the passengers riding inside.

The suspension system is made up of several components, including the chassis, which holds the cab of the car. The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Finally, the anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilizes the car. Your car’s suspension system must be in good condition.

Worn suspension components may reduce the stability of the vehicle and reduce driver control, as well as accelerate wear on other suspension system components. Replacing worn or inadequate shocks and struts will help maintain good ride control, as they:

  • Control spring and suspension movement
  • Provide consistent handling and braking
  • Prevent premature tire wear
  • Help keep the tires in contact with the road
  • Maintain dynamic wheel alignment
  • Control vehicle bounce, roll, sway, drive, and acceleration squat
  • Reduce wear on other vehicle systems
  • Promote even and balanced tire and brake wear
