Suspension & shock absorbers

Your vehicle's steering, control and brakes can all be affected by the type and condition of your suspension and shock absorbers.

Your car's suspension system functions to keep the inside of your car relatively quiet and undisturbed, especially on rough terrain. It also allows you to have full control of the car as you're turning corners, come to a stop with a minimum brake pressure and speed up with a minimum acceleration 'squat'. Crucially, the control your suspension gives you also keeps your tyres in contact with the road to keep you and your passengers safe.

6 Functions of a car suspension system:

  • To maintain correct vehicle ride height
  • To reduce the effect of shock forces
  • To maintain correct wheel alignment
  • To support vehicle weight
  • To keep the tyres in contact with the road
  • To control the vehicle's direction of travel
