Shock Absorbers, Coil Springs, Leaf Springs car parts - all important information about operating method, mounting, diagnostics and service life

Suspension is one of the components of vehicle frame, which serves as an elastic connection between the car body and the wheels, carries out the transmission of the ground force that occur as a result of contact of the wheels with the road, damping.

Vehicle suspension system
  • Linkage. Connect and transfer power to the car body.
  • Elastic element. Assumes the load that arises as a result of interaction between the wheels and the road surface, accumulates it and transmits to the car body.
  • Car front stabilizer. Reduces the oscillation amplitude of the car body that occurs as a result of elastic elements operation.
  • Anti-roll bar. It distributes the weight between the wheels and prevents heeling of the car when turning.
  • Wheel bearing. Provides load distribution between linkage and shock absorber.
  • Fasteners. Ensure the integrity of the structure and connection with the car body.
Types of suspensions
  • Dependent. The wheels are connected by axle, which holds wheels parallel to each other.
  • Independent. The wheels are not connected to each other:
    • Double wishbone. It provides a stable perpendicular to the road position of the wheels.
    • McPherson. It is more convenient to use than a double wishbone suspension, has smaller size.
    • Trailing arm. Exposed to loads to a greater extent.
    • Multi-link. It has longitudinal and lateral arms. It incorporates good handling and good ride, low noise level.
    • Torsion bar. It is a mixed type of suspension, semi-independent.
Tips to car suspension exploitation
  1. Do not exceed the cargo weight limit.
  2. Selection of the way with a better road surface is a perfect solution.
  3. Do not forget about the recommendations of the manufacturer.
  4. Technical inspection of car suspension is to be carried out every 30 000 km.
  5. Acquirement of original spare parts is the best way to save.
Car suspension failure
  • mismatch of the front wheel alignment;
  • worn-out condition of rubber-metal or ball fasteners;
  • distortion of the suspension arms;
  • worn-out condition of bushing or mechanical damage of the front stabilizer;
  • spring stiffness reducing or spring breakage;
  • mechanical damage of the stabilizer strut;
  • mechanical damage or worn-out condition of the shock absorber, infringement of tightness.
Signs of car suspension failure
  • deviation of the straight trajectory of the vehicle;
  • malfunction of the steering system;
  • uneven or increased tire wear;
  • substantial car heeling when turning and braking, and as a consequence swinging of the car body;
  • unstable suspension operation;
  • presence of extraneous sounds in the suspension while driving;
  • presence of significant vibration when driving.
Causes of suspension failure
  • The quality of the road surface;
  • Use of low-quality details;
  • low quality of repairs;
  • aggressive driving style;
  • conditions of vehicle exploitation.
