The suspension system

Your auto’s suspension system is made up of two main parts:

  • The suspension springs
  • which are responsible for keeping the vehicle from making contact with the road.
  • The shock absorbers
  • which include springs
  • hydraulic fluid
  • joints and struts. These are responsible for minimizing the vehicle rebound effect caused by the suspension springs.

The role of your vehicle’s suspension system is essential, as it allows the wheels to maintain as much traction as possible. In fact, the suspension helps absorb impacts as you drive (for example, when you go over a pothole or speed bump), ensuring a smoother ride and improving vehicle handling by holding the wheels to the road.

To ensure your safety, to help you avoid losing control of the vehicle and to prevent damage to the vehicle’s components, it’s recommended that you have your suspension system inspected every 20,000 kilometers and that you replace the parts on both sides every 70,000 kilometers.

Signs of suspension problems

There are several indications of defects and malfunctions in your vehicle’s suspension system. Here are a few of them:

  • Your vehicle feels like it’s bouncing when you go over a bump or crack
  • Your vehicle feels like it veers of course when it’s going around a curve
  • changing directions or subjected to strong gusts of wind coming from the side
  • The nose of your vehicle drops sharply when you apply the brakes
  • Your vehicle seems to rest on its rear-end
  • Your tires wear unevenly
  • You hear knocking
  • grinding or squealing sounds when turning or braking
  • You notice rust
  • damage or leaking in the vicinity of the shock absorbers

If you become aware of any of these warning signs, it’s time to visit your automotive specialist. The sooner you fix the problem, the better, as you’ll avoid potentially worse ones down the road.

Problems with your suspension can result in premature wear and tear and even lead to more serious damage to the rest of the system:

  • Pads
  • Ball joints
  • Support wheel
  • Pitman arm
