Your suspension is made up of a chassis, shocks, struts, springs, and an anti-sway bar. It does four things for your vehicle. One, it holds up its weight. Two, it minimizes its body roll. Three, it keeps its wheels spinning reliably. Four, it maintains proper alignment for braking and turning. The results? First, stable steering. Second, under-control handling. Third, and perhaps most importantly, less stress on your vehicle's many parts, not to mention a much smoother ride.
Sooner or later, though, suspensions can wear out, and a bad suspension means both loss of stability and control and quicker wear and tear on suspension parts. Luckily, a suspension can last 50,000 to 80,000 miles. However, their lifespans depend on many factors.
When Do I Replace Suspension Parts?
It's best to look for signs they may need changing:
- Pulling sideways when you turn

- Rougher ride quality than normal
