Suspension Components

Steering & Suspension


Suspension components typically include springs, shocks, struts, bushings, control arms, strut rods, and the sway bar.


Suspension components are responsible for maintaining the relationship between the wheels and the frame or uni-body. The suspension system interacts directly with the steering system to provide vehicle control.

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions

Your vehicle’s suspension system should be checked regularly, at least once a year, along with a complete wheel alignment. Worn or damaged suspension system components can cause wandering, pulling, erratic steering, excessive tire wear, leaning, bottoming out, or poor ride and handling. To get professional help with your car’s suspension system, contact a qualified service technician.
