The suspension system of your vehicle consists of springs and shock absorbers that work together to cushion the car from the uneven motion of the four wheels in contact with the road. A sudden shock from a pothole or other obstruction in the road can damage this system. Over time, these shocks will wear out the components of your vehicle suspension, thus reducing the life of these components.

As an experienced driver, you know that potholes and rough roads are part of life, especially during winter. Many times, a large pothole in the road ahead can’t be avoided as it could be dangerous to try to swerve around it. You find yourself cringing as your car takes the big bump. Over time those bumps can add up to problems with your vehicle suspension and alignment. A big enough bump can even cause your car to “bottom out,” meaning the bottom of your car could hit the road.

The term “suspension” refers to all of the components that connect the vehicle to the road, such as tires, car axles, and shocks. Although vehicles may vary in their suspension designs, they are all designed to do three things:

  • Support the vehicle
  • Absorb bumps and other shocks
  • The vehicle turns in response to steering

When your vehicle suspension system goes bad, the results can be dangerous, as it impacts the steering and stopping the performance of your vehicle. To regain stability and control of your vehicle, have the shocks, or struts, replaced. This will also improve stopping performance.

Remember: Don’t let damage from potholes and other obstacles in the road affect your vehicle’s efficiency and safety.
