A steering and suspension inspection and maintenance service will include an inspection of your car or truck’s shock absorbers and accompanying struts, CV joints, boots, and axle, rack and pinion units, ball joints, bushing, sway bars, tie rods, and wheel bearings. While it is true that each vehicle has its own suspension system, the basics are nearly the same. Shock absorbers and coil or leaf springs take a bulk of the abuse from the road. The shock absorbers absorb the rebounding vibrations of the springs, though they both aid in control. A conventional suspension system is made up of shock absorbers, coils, control arms, shafts, rods, bushing, and joints. Today’s modern front-wheel drive cars and trucks have a strut suspension system that combines many isolated components of a conventional suspension system into one working unit.
