A suspension system is a collection of components that work together to absorb shocks, vibrations, and irregularities from the road surface, ensuring that the vehicle's tires maintain optimal contact with the road. This is essential for various reasons:
Tire Grip: The amount of tire contact with the road surface affects traction and grip. A well-designed suspension system helps keep the tires in contact with the road, allowing the vehicle to maintain better control during acceleration, braking, and cornering.
Handling and Stability: A properly functioning suspension system contributes to the vehicle's stability and handling. It helps distribute the forces generated during cornering evenly across the tires, preventing excessive body roll, sway, and loss of control.
