Is a comfortable ride really all that important?
Your car’s suspension system is more than just offering you a comfortable ride over bumps in the road. What if I told you a worn shock absorber could add up to 6 feet when stopping? That may seem a short distance but if you are stopping quickly at a cross walk, it could result in a pedestrian or bicycle accident.
The suspension system takes a lot of abuse over time from driving, weather, and road conditions. These components do wear out and will compromise the stability in the steering, safety in handling, friction between tire and road, accelerates tire wear, and of course, a smoother ride for passengers.
Having your suspension components checked yearly is very important and will ensure your car is functioning safely. Watch our youtube video for detailed information on how suspension affects you.
