There's no more dependable way to keep a car's steering stable and its handling under control than a dependable factory suspension. Your suspension has two other important jobs: to limit the effects of bumpy roads on you and your passengers, and to limit the effects of rugged terrain on all your vehicle's parts. Suspension systems are made up a chassis, springs, shocks and struts, and an anti-sway bar. They work together to do everything from support weight and minimize body roll to ease wheel movement and maintain proper alignment for turning and braking. Eventually, however, even a high-quality original suspension wears out. A bad suspension can diminish stability, quicken wear on other auto parts, and result in lack of control. How long suspensions last, however, depends on driving conditions and the type of driving you do. Most OEM suspension parts, though, last from 50,000 to 80,000 miles. The signs you need suspension repair or parts replacement are your car pulling during turning, uneven tire treads, greasy or oily shocks and struts, and a plain old rough ride. Luckily, if you're seeing these symptoms, ordering genuine replacement suspension parts online for a project is easy. Browse our auto parts catalog, buy now, and save time and money!
