Time to get to know the various parts that may need service or replacement to maintain the ease and integrity of your vehicle’s suspension performance.
Understanding RV Suspension Issues
The main function of your vehicle’s suspension system is to provide structural support for your RV while maintaining comfortable riding conditions for you and your passengers. To do this, suspension system components help your tires maintain firm and even contact with the road by compensating for bumps, potholes, dips, and sudden turns. These components include ball joints, coil springs, leaf springs, tie rods, torsion bars, shocks, and struts, which all work to absorb bounce and unexpected motion from the surface of the road. As RV's are notorious for unsmooth rides in challenging road or weather conditions, your suspension system should be in place for the following reasons:
- Minimize Vibration
- Decrease RV Wear and Tear
- Keep Ownership Costs at Minimal Need by Reducing Maintenance Need
