The car suspension needs to maintain contact between the tyres and the road surface and more importantly it maintains friction or road holding. The suspension also needs to isolate or smooth out the variations or bumps in the road surface to maintain passenger comfort whatever the terrain.
Your vehicle has both front and rear suspension units comprising a form of spring and shock absorber. The springs are designed to support the weight of your vehicle and keep the wheels in contact with the road surface at all times. The springs compress then rebound as the vehicle travels over an uneven road surface and help maintain a smooth and comfortable journey. To reduce the tendency for the springs to oscillate back and forth, shock absorbers are incorporated to dampen down the oscillations. A shock absorber tends to act like a piston pumping hydraulic fluid or air back and forth to counter the oscillation of the spring. By reducing bounce they help maintain road-tyre contact and improve vehicle control. At Silverback Performance Ltd shock absorbers and suspension inspection is an automatic part of our routine servicing
