Vehicle suspensions are designed maximize friction between the tires and the road provide stable steering minimize body roll control weight transfer during corning and braking. Isolate road shock by allowing the vehicle’s body to ride independently. It also allows the vehicle to turn in a curved path it does all of this and at the same time providing a comfortable ride.
There are many suspension system designs, for example a sports car designed for high speed driving will have a suspension designed specifically for high speed corning and braking. A system designed to minimize weight transfer during high speed cornering and braking. A good tuned system like this many drivers claim that it feels like it’s on rails. Whereas a typical passenger car isn’t designed for this purpose trying to get it to perform like a sports car is just impossible. Whatever suspension system design your vehicle may have their primary function is the same. When it comes to inspecting and repairing suspension systems it’s not uncommon for someone to overlook a component. There are hundreds of parts that make up a suspension system which all work together to provide all of the functions to ensure fun safe driving. To understand the importance of the suspension system lets take a look at a few of the parts that make up suspension system.
