Shocks, Struts, Steering & Suspension

Suspension is the term given to the system of springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels.

Suspension systems serve a dual purpose — contributing to the car's road holding/handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations.

These goals are generally at odds, so the tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires.

The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear. The design of front and rear suspension of a car may be different.

For the enthusiast, we also offer the ability to alter your factory suspension with lifts kits and soften or harden your suspension.

Have our ASE-Certified Technicians make sure ride in just the way you like it.
