Wonder why your auto mechanic advised you to keep your car's suspension system always in good condition? Well, the answer is simple. The suspension system of your car maximizes the friction between the tires and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of your passengers as well. In other words, the Chrysler suspension system controls the movement of your vehicle and keeps the tires in contact with the road, providing a better and safer ride. If the road were perfectly flat, with no irregularities, this system would not be necessary. But it's not; the roads are far from flat. Even those new paved streets have imperfections which can interact with the wheels of your vehicle. So, it is very important to have a reliable suspension system.
Chrysler suspension system is composed of a variety of parts that works altogether to serve its function well. Some of these parts are the shocks or shock absorbers, control arms, coil springs, and leaf springs. But not all vehicles are equipped with the same suspension parts. Modern vehicles can be equipped with only two upper control arms instead of the usual for. The other two control arms are substituted with struts. The strut is a special type of shock absorber that helps to minimize the motion of the suspension. The strut assembly is surrounded by the coil spring.
Your Chrysler struts and shock absorbers work in very similar ways, though Chrysler struts function as a structural part of the suspension system. Therefore, your Chrysler struts also affect things like wheel alignment, vehicle control and suspensions wear. Now, if your Chrysler bounces two or three times after you hit a pothole or a bump on the streets, it's time for you to replace your Chrysler struts.
