Potholes and rough roads can harm your car’s shocks, struts, or springs, resulting in an uncomfortable ride. In and Out Tires can restore your car’s comfortable ride.
It’s no secret that some of Delaware’s streets are showing the effect of the rough winter weather with potholes of all sizes making roads and parking lots hazardous for drivers. Not only do potholes make for tricky, uncomfortable driving, they can damage your car making a vehicle that rode well into an uncomfortable, eye-jiggling experience for your passengers.
While potholes and other road imperfections can damage tires and knock your wheels out of alignment, some of the worst damage can happen to the struts, springs and/or shocks that make up your car’s suspension system.
“Struts refer to a type of suspension while shocks and springs are a component of all suspension assemblies,” itstillruns.com explains. “Shock absorbers are mechanical devices designed to decrease the impact of riding on a road….
“Springs are coils that absorb vertical impact. Similar in function to the shocks, springs are designed quite differently. Consisting of a large rod of metal shaped into a helix, springs are capable of absorbing large amounts of energy. However, springs do not absorb small impacts well. If a car only had springs and no shock absorbers, the small bumps in the road would be intolerable. Springs are typically found in all suspension systems.
“Struts are a type of suspension system present in many cars. MacPherson struts are the most common form of strut suspension that use a shock absorber as the steering pivot.”
Damage to any one part of the suspension system can affect your car’s ride, taking it from a smooth experience to a rough ride that causes every bump in the road to be felt all the way up your spine.
