Suspension Repair

A suspension system provides a flexible connection between the wheels and the rest of an automobile, allowing the car to ride smoothly and comfortably over bumps in the road while still permitting safe handling of the vehicle while accelerating, braking and cornering. At All Things Automotive, our trained mechanics will help you keep your automobile's suspension system in good working order.

The suspension of a car is actually part of the chassis, which involves all the systems located beneath the car's body including the frame, the suspension system, the steering system, and the tires and wheels.

Unless there is a shock absorber, which is basically a dampening structure, the springs would continue to bounce for a while at an uncontrolled rate even after passing the bump in the road. The shock absorber slows down and reduces the bouncing by turning the kinetic energy of the spring into heat energy dissipated through hydraulic fluid. The shock absorber helps the car to adjust to the road and driving conditions; these include sway, bounce, the front-end dive that occurs when you brake, and the squats of the rear end when you accelerate. If you car bounces excessively over bumps and leans hard in corners, your shocks could be worn and should be replaced.

A strut is basically a shock absorber inside a coil spring, providing more structural support. Check your shocks or struts for leakage. If you notice deterioration in the ride of your automobile, have the struts checked.

Anti-sway bars (metal rods that span the axle and join the suspension together) also give more stability by balancing movement between the wheels. Anti-sway bars are particularly effective in cornering.
