Basic Technical Details of Auto Suspension Systems

An automotive suspension system is designed to dissipate vibrations from the wheels. Even when rolling on a smooth highway that's covered in asphalt or concrete, the tires are still exposed to significant forces. Without a suspension system, you and any other occupants in the moving vehicle would experience some harsh shocks from all angles. Fortunately, springs and dampers are powerful enough to resist the major impacts between the tires and the ground.

Coil springs and leaf springs are some of the most common installations in contemporary passenger cars. Some models are fitted with torsion bars that twist and rotate when exposed to external impacts. Additionally, air springs are typically installed in luxury vehicles and high-performance cars that require extra support for superb ride quality. These types of springs have excellent compressive properties, especially for fast-moving cars. Based in Poughkeepsie, Friendly Honda offers certified automotive repairs and replacements of suspension systems.
