Why Your Suspension System Is Integral to Performance
Located on the undercarriage of your vehicle, the suspension system is an essential component to your overall performance. It helps keep your vehicle stable and controlled when accelerating, braking, and cornering by distributing weight evenly between all four wheels. Additionally, your suspension absorbs bumps and other road imperfections to create a smooth and comfortable ride for you and your passengers; in doing so, it prevents your vehicle from bottoming out and causing damage. It also helps prevent uneven or rapid tire wear, which can lead to poor performance and premature tire failure. The suspension is a sturdy system, but it’s not invincible. It’s vulnerable to normal wear and tear and damage from accidents and adverse driving conditions, such as rough or uneven roads or harsh weather. Even a lack of maintenance or problems with connected parts, such as improper wheel alignment or steering system issues, can compromise your suspension.
