How does suspension system work?
Three components make up the suspension system primarily: shock absorbers, springs, struts. Shock absorbers, as the name says, work to keep the car from irregularities and shocks of road, like a pothole. They absorb the vertical energy from the tyres due to shocks and bumps of the road and let the car move smoothly. On the other hand, struts are the structural parts of the suspension system that hold the shocks in place and help keep the tyres going on road. Similarly, springs are a safe link between tyres and road. Three of them together ensure high performance and reduction in bouncing while driving.
Signs that you need suspension repair:
