The suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers, and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels. The suspension supports your ride quality as well as road stability. If the suspension is not working right, it can cause instability.
The animated video shows a worn shock, which causes the car to bounce. Shocks are an important competent of the suspension because the shock keeps the vehicle on the ground. So instead of bouncing like a basketball on the pavement, it holds it down to the ground, minimizing the time that it bounces off the ground. If the car is bouncing too much, you lose control of steering, braking, and accelerating. So, it's important to keep all that working properly.
Whether you come to Weber Automotive for an oil change or another routine service, or you feel like your car is a little too bouncy, we will check your suspension to make sure everything is looking good.
If you suspect that something might be wrong with your suspension, if it is hard to make turns, brake, accelerate, or if you feel like your car is bumpy, contact us at Weber Automotive today. We will make sure your vehicle is as safe as possible and make any repairs or replacement necessary to get you back out on the road.
