Do you know your Suspension System parts?

Knowing your Vehicle's Suspension System

The suspension system comprises different parts. These components affect various facets connected to your car’s stability, comfort, and handling. 

Components that make up a suspension system include:

The main component. They support the vehicle’s weight and absorb the shock when you hit rough patches or bumpy roads.


Hydraulic or pneumatic devices that work alongside the springs to reduce unnecessary jolting.
Similar to shock absorbers, but also serve as a structural component of the suspension system.
Metal components typically shaped like a triangle or “A.” A ball joint at the end allows the wheel and tire to move up and down with the suspension.
Connect the suspension on both sides of the vehicle.
Small rubber or polyurethane components that fit inside the control arms. They help to reduce vibrations and noise while allowing the control arm to move freely.

These components work together to:

Absorb shocks and vibrations caused by uneven road surfaces
Keep the car’s wheels in contact with the road for better traction and handling
Distribute weight evenly across all four wheels
Maintain a comfortable ride for you and your passengers

Why Suspension Services Matter?

Common Problems of Car Suspension

Unfortunately, suspension systems can develop specific problems over time.

If you experience any of these issues, bring your vehicle to a trusted mechanic for inspection and immediate repair.

Expert Suspension Repair & Services We Offer at

Hans Wittler's Automotive in Albuquerque, NM

At Hans Wittler’s Automotive, we pride ourselves on providing the highest-quality suspension repair and services for Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Volkswagen, and other brands.

Some of our suspension services include:

Our service will start with a comprehensive inspection. Our technicians will thoroughly check for any signs of damage or wear and tear. We’ll check the shocks, struts, springs, and other components to ensure they function correctly.

If your vehicle’s shocks or struts are worn out or damaged, we’ll replace them with high-quality parts specifically designed for your German vehicle.


As springs can weaken or break over time, they must be replaced occasionally to restore your car’s proper ride height and handling.


We use state-of-the-art equipment to align your German vehicle’s wheels correctly. Correcting the three wheel angles (camber, caster, toe) will improve your car’s handling and reduce tire wear.


If you’re looking to improve your car’s performance, various suspension upgrades are available for German vehicles. For example, high-performance shocks, struts, springs, and suspension kits can lower a car’s center of gravity.

How Often Should I Have Service My Suspension System?

The frequency depends on several factors, including your driving habits, road conditions, and the age of your vehicle.

Having your suspension system inspected at least once a year or every 12,000 miles is generally recommended. However, if you frequently drive on rough roads or over potholes, you may need to have your suspension system serviced more often.


Can I Replace Just One Shock or Strut?

Shocks or struts should be replaced in pairs, as uneven wear can cause imbalances and affect handling. 

That’s because shocks and struts work in pairs to absorb shocks and vibrations from the road. The other may have to work harder to compensate if one is worn or damaged. This can cause uneven wear and tear on the remaining shock or strut, leading to premature failure. It’s best to replace both at the same time.


Can I Drive With a Damaged Suspension System?

Driving with a damaged suspension system can be dangerous. It can compromise the safety and stability of your vehicle, making it more difficult to control and increasing the risk of accidents. 

If you suspect your suspension system is damaged or needs repair, it must be inspected and repaired by a trusted mechanic as soon as possible. They can assess the damage and recommend the appropriate services to ensure your vehicle is safe and stable.
