The suspension maintains the relationship between the wheels and the frame or unibody. The suspension system interacts with the steering system to provide vehicle control. When working properly, the suspension system helps absorb the energy from road irregularities such as potholes and helps to maintain vehicle stability. The steering system transmits your input from the steering wheel to the steering gear and other steering components to control the car’s direction. Brake-O-Rama offers Automobile Shocks Service NJ.
The key components in your car’s steering and suspension systems:
|A. Shocks and/or struts
B. Steering Knuckle
C. Ball joints
|D. Steeriing rack/box
E. Bearings, seals or hub units
F. Tie rod ends
When it comes to absorbing the shocks of the road, you’d think the shock absorbers would take care of everything. But you’d only be half right. Actually, coil or leaf springs handle the abuse of the road. Your shock absorbers handle the abuse caused by the rebound of the springs. They both work together to keep your vehicle under control. And those two components, plus a variety of control arms, shafts, rods, bushings, joints, and knuckles make up what’s commonly called a conventional suspension.
Whether your vehicle has a conventional suspension system with shock absorbers or a strut-based system (which is typical in many front-wheel-drive cars), your local Brake-o-Rama shop has the know-how to diagnose and repair any problem. We also have the equipment necessary to correct any alignment issues we might find.
