In a vehicle, suspension is the system which increased the friction between the road and the vehicle’s tires. This ensures that the vehicle remains stable on the road and does not skid. It also improves a driver’s control over his car.
When a car drives over a bump or a pothole, the wheel moves up and down, absorbing the shock, while the body of the vehicle remains relatively smooth and undisturbed. How well the wheels absorb this energy as they accelerate vertically, determines how smooth a vehicle’s ride is.
The suspension system should be good enough to absorb the energy, thus keeping the body of the vehicle stable.
Shocks and struts in a vehicle function to make riding a car a more comfortable experience. Struts keep your car stable while it is being driven; while shocks absorb the energy when the car is driven oven a pothole etc. It reduces the bouncing which occurs in the spring inside the strut.
Shocks are in the form of two tubes; one large and one small. The smaller one is present inside the larger one. They are filled with a fluid which is present under pressure. The whole assembly is present behind the wheels.
Struts are in the form of larger tubes which have springs inside them.
Both struts and shocks help to stabilize your vehicle. If you are driving and you notice that your car is not going as smooth as it used to, and is bumping and bouncing more, you may need to get your shocks checked. Hearing unusual sounds from the wheels may also be an indication of faulty shocks.
If you need to get your shocks and struts checked, you should pay a visit to Universal Car Care Automotive workshop. Universal Car Care experienced and talented motor mechanics will give your suspension system a free inspection, along with an estimate of how much repairs would cost you.
