Understanding the Main Components of Your Car's Suspension System

Close-up of a car

It doesn’t matter how much horsepower your vehicle has; if the suspension is shot, you’re not going anywhere. Your vehicle's suspension is responsible for keeping your tires on the road, allowing you to stay in control. Suspension systems are made of numerous components that work together to provide safety and comfort.

The frame supports your vehicle’s body and engine. The shock absorbers are located near the wheels, and are responsible for handling the pressure from bumps in the road. Some vehicles have sophisticated spring systems that allow uneven parts of the road to pass virtually unnoticed by the passengers. Lastly, the tires of your vehicle grip the road with help from the rest of the suspension system.
