Suspension Systems

Springs and dampers/shocks are the two most basic suspension components, and these parts are used in various ways on different vehicles. Some cars have the same suspension on the front and back, and others have different suspension setups for their back and front wheels. Systems also differ based on whether they share an axle between the left and right sides:

Independent systems

There are multiple independent systems available, all of which have dedicated suspension components for each wheel. Independent suspension is common on the front of cars.

Dependent systems

This type of suspension shares a common axle between the left and right wheels. Dependent systems often feature on the rear of cars and are widely used on trucks.

Suspension Service and Repairs

Your suspension system should be checked at every vehicle service and whenever symptoms are identified. While suspension jobs are not normally carried out during a vehicle service, problems can be identified early before they create problems down the road. During every service, our experienced mechanics will look at your entire vehicle.

The following issues are known to cause suspension problems:

  • Incorrect wheel alignment

  • Leaking or worn-out shocks or struts

  • Damaged springs

  • Floating ball joints

  • Damaged control arms

The following symptoms can indicate the need for suspension repairs:

  • Vehicle pulls to one side

  • Car sits lower on one side

  • Pulsing or shaking sensations

  • Squeaking or creaking noises

  • Clunks or rattling noises

  • Inconsistent steering

  • Vehicle feels loose over bumps

If any of these symptoms appear, your car should be checked by an experienced mechanic as soon as possible.
