Your car or vehicle suspension system is primarily a complex series of components that have been designed to work together to limit the vibrations and undulations
that you get in your vehicle from driving on a standard road.The aim of a suspension system is to give a smooth, controlled and comfortable driving experience.

The main components of a suspension system includes a coil spring and a shock absorber or also called a damper. These shocks and springs work together to
dampen down and cushion the vehicle by absorbing the impact from potholes and other minor imperfections in the road.

This keeps your vehicle stable on the road and your tyres firmly in contact with the road surface for the maximum amount of time which in turn works makes your
brakes more effective.

If your vehicle has worn shock absorbers, this can add on up to 2 metres to your braking distance when travelling at 30mph as tyres have less contact with the road.

Keeping your car or vehicle suspension system in good order is vital if you want to maintain the optimum comfort, stability and handling characteristics of your vehicle.
