The job of a car suspension is to maximize the friction between the tyres and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers
The suspension of a car is actually part of the chassis, which comprises all of the important systems located beneath the car's body.
These systems include:
The frame - structural, load-carrying component that supports the car's engine and body, which are in turn supported by the suspension
The suspension system - setup that supports weight, absorbs and dampens shock and helps maintain tyre contact
The steering system - mechanism that enables the driver to guide and direct the vehicle
The tyres and wheels - components that make vehicle motion possible by way of grip and/or friction with the road
So the suspension is just one of the major systems in any vehicle.
Almost all joints and pivots in a modern suspension system have rubber or plastic bushes, with the possible exception of steering swivel joints
Because of the constant movement of the suspension parts, the bushes gradually wear out, soften and perish.
Oil contamination also causes them to deteriorate, and if they are allowed to deteriorate too much, they become loose and the steering and roadholding suffers.
It is essential to make a regular check on the condition of all joints in the suspension system.
