An automobile’s suspension is very much a system that includes (amongst others) the tires (including the air inside them), springs, (hydraulic) shock absorbers and flexible links. This system connects the vehicle safely to its wheels while allowing relative motion between them.
A Dual Purpose System
From the safety standpoint, the system contributes significantly to the road holding and handling characteristics of the vehicle to ensure that the vehicle does go in the direction that you are steering it into and then safely slows down or comes to a halt whenever you apply the brakes. Furthermore, it has to do this despite the condition of the road that you are driving along. Fortunately, this can usually be accomplished by a system that can also keep the car’s occupants reasonably isolated from tire noise, road bumps, vibration, etc. In other words, a correctly set up system gives passengers a ride that is both safe and comfortable.
Correctly Set Up And Regularly Maintained
One has to assume that the vehicle’s manufacturer has correctly designed the system to suit both the vehicle itself and the sort of driving conditions it is most likely to encounter. However, a noticeable number of owners like to modify and customize their vehicles. Bigger wheels and modified suspensions are popular items amongst such people. They may care to sacrifice passenger comfort but it is essential that they ensure that their modifications do not compromise vehicular safety.
Unfortunately, components can fail under “fair wear and tear” conditions but you should not wait for this to happen before taking the vehicle in for suspension repair in Mokena or anywhere else. Regular inspections and preventative maintenance are very important in keeping all parts of your vehicle in good, safe running order from its tires up.
