Do you enjoy a smooth, stable, and controlled ride? And one that is efficient, too? You can thank your car’s suspension system. The suspension is located on the undercarriage of a vehicle and sits on the frame. Its network of components is responsible for providing an agile and comfortable driving experience, and collectively, it offers support for the weight of the car. The suspension system consists of shocks and struts, coil springs, control arms, sway bars, bearings, bushings, ball joints, and linkages—among others. These pieces each have a specific job to do to ensure your ride is smooth. Sway bars, for example, help prevent your vehicle from rolling over. Meanwhile, coil springs absorb energy and, in turn, limit vehicle bounce. All suspension parts are constantly in motion, leaving them prone to wear, malfunction, and even damage. At Mad Hatter Auto Repair in Council Bluffs, Iowa, our certified technicians have extensive experience with all suspension systems and are your number-one source for suspension repair!
