What Does Your Suspension System Do?

Your vehicle’s suspension system is more than just a collection of springs and shocks; it’s a complex network designed to support your vehicle’s weight, absorb road imperfections, and ensure proper tire contact with the road. Over time, components such as shocks and struts can wear out, leading to a noticeable decline in ride quality and handling performance.







What is Your Suspension System Composed of?

Modern suspension systems, like the one found in your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge & Ram vehicle, are made up of a multitude of components, highlighted by the struts and shock absorbers.

Shocks: Shocks (or Shock Absorbers) are designed to dampen the fluctuation of your vehicle’s springs, absorbing the imperfections of the road and reducing cabin vibrations. Without effective shock absorbers, your vehicle can experience excessive bouncing, reducing overall control and comfort.

Struts: Struts are a critical component of your suspension system, integrating numerous suspension parts into one assembly. They provide structural support to the suspension and the vehicle’s body, absorb shocks from the road, and contribute to smoother handling and improved stability.

How Do You Know If You Need to Service My Suspension System?

It’s essential to be aware of the signs indicating that your suspension system requires attention. Here are some common symptoms:

  • Uneven Tire Wear: If your tires show uneven wear patterns, it could be a sign that your suspension system is not maintaining proper tire contact with the road.
  • Bumpy Ride: If your vehicle feels excessively bouncy or you notice a decrease in ride comfort, it might be time to check your shocks and struts.
  • Leaking Fluid: Visible leaks around your shocks or struts indicate they are worn out and need replacement.
  • Nose Dives and Squats: When braking, if the front end of your vehicle dives or the rear end squats during acceleration, it’s a sign of suspension issues.
  • Poor Steering Response: Difficulty in steering or a noticeable decrease in handling performance suggests that your suspension system needs inspection.
