Suspension, Steering, and Tires

Most of the roads that we drive on are not perfectly smooth and straight. S-curves, potholes, speed bumps, construction zones, and weather conditions make it necessary for vehicles to have control mechanisms. A properly working suspension and steering system gives the operator and passengers of the vehicle a smooth and pleasant ride. Shocks, struts, springs, and tires all assist in controlling the automobile by keeping the tires in contact with the road.
