Suspension Repair & Service

There are four major spring designs in use today: coil, leaf, torsion bar, and air .  The springs support the entire weight of the vehicle, absorb road shock and maintain proper ride height. Shocks and/or struts control spring oscillations. A spring that is not properly controlled can cause a rough and unstable ride.
