Reduce Bounce: Service Your Suspension

As a car owner you understand that routine maintenance is important to keeping your car running safely, and the suspension is one system that needs to be checked. Below are some parts that make up your car's suspension and what they are responsible for:

  • Springs: Springs is responsible for absorbing the bumps and dips in the road. Luckily springs are meant to last the life of your car and rarely need to be replaced. (https://www.autoeducation.com/autoshop101/suspension.htm)
  • Shocks: Shocks work to dampen the spring’s tendency to bounce. Shocks contain fluid that dampens the movement of the spring, and after prolonged use, the fluid can degrade or leak and the shocks will need to be replaced. (https://www.autoeducation.com/autoshop101/suspension.htm)
  • Struts: Some vehicles have struts which are a combination of the shock and spring and work the same they just utilize one part instead of two.
