Understanding the Basics of a Suspension System

Your vehicle’s suspension system is actually a complex collection of mechanical parts. All of those different components work together to give you full control over your vehicle no matter the terrain. That is why it is so important for all drivers to have a basic understanding of how suspension systems work.

When you are driving on surface streets in Bakersfield, your suspension is going to keep your tires pointing forward until you turn the steering wheel. As soon as you hit a speed bump or pothole, the struts and springs will keep the body of the vehicle relatively still. If any of those parts are worn or broken, then you might notice issues such as the car pulling to the side or a rolling motion whenever you hit a pothole.

Please contact the service department at Barber Honda today if your vehicle’s suspension is ready for an overhaul.
