More About Suspension
Your vehicle’s suspension performs multiple important tasks. It supports the weight of the auto’s body, assists you in controlling your car as you drive, and helps you ride comfortably. Many components work together to form the suspension system. These include the springs, axles, joints, coils, control arms, bushings, dampers, shocks or struts, and torsion bar. Common configurations are MacPherson, double wishbone, and air suspensions. As you drive and cross imperfections in the road surface, various system parts help absorb and dampen the shock. Not only does this make the ride bearable, but it also helps you with steering and control. It’s a good idea to have the team at Top Notch Automotive inspect your car’s suspension at least once yearly. However, various signs should prompt you to schedule a visit sooner. For instance, if you notice new odd noises like grinding or screeching as you turn, you could have trouble brewing in the ball joint areas. Also, if your ride is becoming bumpier, your car continues to bounce long after you’ve crossed a bump, or your auto dips as you brake, worn shock absorbers might be suspected. Furthermore, an uneven tire wear pattern, pulling to one side as you drive, or a singing noise that seems to come from the tires could indicate poor wheel alignment. We’ll need to check and adjust the major camber, caster, toe, and thrust suspension angles. Finally, you might notice your vehicle sitting sideways or appearing to sag if it needs suspension repair.
