Visit Chantilly’s Suspension Experts at My Dad’s Automotive

Your vehicle’s suspension rig is one of the most underrated elements of your car. Its main purpose is to keep your car stable while operating on the road at both fast and slow speeds. Your vehicle’s suspension system, along with its steering system, also keeps your wheels moving in a straight line when the steering wheel is centered.

Your suspension, when operating correctly, is what stops your trunk from hitting the ground when you accelerate and the nose of your car from diving into the road when you hit the brakes. Without your suspension, you’d be in for a very bumpy ride.
