Vehicle suspension    


The term "suspension" refers to a system of springs, shock absorbers and linkages that work together to keep the vehicle in contact with the road while maintaining traction. The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear. The design of the front and rear suspension of a car may be different depending on the layout of the automobile's drive line and purpose. Common kinds of suspension systems include: dependent, independent and double wishbone suspension systems.




A strut assembly is a structural part of your vehicle’s suspension system. The spring in a strut is what keeps your car driving smoothly while you drive over all sorts of road conditions. The strut assembly attaches directly to your car chassis and removes the need for an upper control arm. It is also possible to easily adjust ride height with some strut assemblies. Numerous parts that combine to make a strut assembly include a strut, boot-kit & bumper, coil spring, upper spring seat, strut mounting bearing plate and upper and lower isolators. It is necessary to repair suspension components that are faulty to ensure safe riding.
