Suspension of a car is used to maximise the friction between the tyres and the surface of the road. It provides steering stability with good handling, thus ensuring the passengers’ safety. A car’s suspension offers three solutions namely – road isolation (where it absorbs energy from road bumps and dissipates it without causing undue oscillation in the vehicle), road holding (minimise weight transfer of vehicle from one side to the other, front and back, as this weight minimises the grip of tyre), cornering (shifts the weight of the vehicle from high side to low side, usually for curved paths).
Car’s suspension is one of the major components in the vehicle which comprises of – frame, suspension system, loading system, tyres, and wheels. While, shock absorbers of the car are used to slow down and minimise the magnitude of vibratory motions by turning the kinetic energy of suspension’s movement into heat energy which can be dissipated via hydraulic fluid.
Interesting thing to note here is that in case of suspension it is just the tyres which are in contact with the road, while wheels and the car’s axle are connected with the vehicle’s suspension system. In case of a high speed bump on the road, the inside of the tyres remain in contact with the road since the springs on suspension push the wheel towards the ground.
In any given scenario, it is best to get your suspension checked every 15,000 to 30,000 miles depending upon the vehicle’s use or when getting the tyres replaced. During any mishap like an accident, it is good to check all parts of the suspension for alleged wear and tear.
To help you avoid rough rides, shocks or struts, pulling and drifting during turns, uneven tread wear, and so on make sure to visit TNT Service Centre for a thorough check. As suspension Mansfield ensures proper alignment and driving ease, it is imperative to regularly examine it for your vehicle’s optimum performance.
