Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Car suspension endures a lot of wear and tear – potholes and road humps take their toll over time and can easily damage the suspension and steering.
Importance of Suspension
A common thinking about performance of a vehicle is considered of its horsepower, torque and zero-to-60 acceleration. But all of the power generated by a piston engine is useless if the driver can’t control the car. That’s why automobile engineers turned their attention to the suspension system almost as soon as they had mastered the four-stroke internal combustion engine.
The job of a car suspension is to maximize the friction between the tires and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers. Suspension helps vehicle for shaking itself in pieces. No matter how smooth a road surface is, vehicle has to rely on suspension. Suspension comprises on two parts, springs and shock absorbers.
