Suspension System: Providing Comfort and Safety
The Suspension System is the most important system on your vehicle for
providing maximum ride comfort. There is something about noise and vibration that can make
the whole driving experience unpleasant. But even more than that, we all care about safety
which this system also provides. AutoPartsNerd
has been in the business for over 40 years and brings you a complete line of suspension system
parts from Moog and Monroe.
Chassis of your vehicle is basically the entire vehicle, minus the body
panels, interior, engine, and the drivetrain. It's the frame, the suspension system, the
steering system, and the wheels and tires. When you think about all of these
components and how much it all weighs and moves, it all comes
down to the suspension. Your Suspension System plays a few pivotal roles. First, it
has to hold up all of that weight, but it also has to hold all of that
weight level and safe while moving at high speeds and around sharp turns.
And, as if that's not enough, it has to do that on roads with bumps, holes,
and all sorts of hazards. All the movement of the vehicle comes from
your tires, stopping or going. If your tires aren't making good contact with the road, then you
can't use them to go, stop or turn. Your suspension is also very important for
keeping all of your tires on the road at all times.

Shock Absorbers & Strut Assemblies
When you mention suspension, the first thing most people will think about are
Shock Absorbers, but over the years, struts and
Strut Assemblies have become almost as popular.
Either way, regardless of whether you are running shocks or struts,
the objective is the same. By absorbing the shock of the wheel as it is
moving up or down, shock absorbers or strut assemblies will significantly
dampen the force you end up feeling inside the vehicle. While there are technically
many points where that force is absorbed between your tire and the steering wheel or seat,
it's your shocks and struts that take one of the biggest hits, by far.
And when it comes to shock absorbers and struts of any kind, there is really
no better name than Monroe.
AutoPartsNerd has made sure to stock and supply Monroe Ride
Control specifically for your vehicle.
Monroe is not only superior for the quality of their product, but because
their focus is on protecting you, with safety first. While they research,
design, and manufacture some of the highest quality auto parts in the
industry, they know better than anyone that your shocks and struts have a
certain "life" to them. And that after that period, you are putting
yourself at a greater risk when it comes to loss of safety and control.

The rest of the suspension is mostly made up of
Moog. Moog is Federal Mogul's line of world premier chassis and
suspension parts. Moog makes everything from control arms and ball joints
to steering rods, linkages, coil springs, and suspension mounts. Moog
goes above and beyond simply manufacturing products with the highest quality
materials. By using their problem solving techniques, they produce auto parts
that are designed better than the original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
Moog has been at this so long that they have even been producing ball joints and
other suspension products for NASCAR for more than 40 years!
Control arms and
along with nearly every part of the suspension
and steering system are all designed to control the movements in the chassis. On top of that,
it must all be done with great precision and strength.
All of these parts are able to do
their jobs with the help of Moog's master crafted suspension Bushings. Aside
from the shock absorbers and strut assemblies, the next auto parts to
sustain the biggest hits in the suspension are the
Coil Springs and
The names of these parts are a great reflection of their design. Coil
springs are a coiled up spring like you would find in a pen, but obviously
are much larger and stronger. Leaf springs are long, flat and slender U shaped
bars that take up more room, but have just as much strength and durability to do their
job. Suspension Mounts
for your shock absorbers and struts are another
heavily relied upon component in your suspension system. If the bushings in your
suspension mounts are no longer good, it could lead to shock and strut damage in
addition to comfort and safety being reduced.
