Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. The tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires.
A car alignment is actually an elaborate process that brings the car’s suspension into its proper configuration, positioning and adjusting components so that wheels are aligned with one another and the road surface. The mechanic will also take this opportunity to make sure that no suspension components are excessively worn
Every vehicle has a combination of springs and either shock absorbers or struts. Springs actually support the weight of the vehicle and also serve to cushion the ride, preventing jolts from pavement irregularities from making their way into the passenger compartment or cargo area, while shocks and struts limit the vertical motion from the springs as well as soaking up impacts from the road.
We repair and maintain suspension systems on nearly every vehicle make and model.
