Chances are you already know that a vehicle’s suspension system is made up of shock absorbers, springs, and linkages that connect the vehicle to its wheels. But do you know why it’s so important to have a good suspension system?
A good suspension system results in a smoother ride. Because a suspension system’s function is to contribute to a vehicle’s handling and braking, as well as to keep passengers as isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations as possible, it’s important to select one that works with the way you drive.
Baja racers are usually pretty quick to choose Carli Suspension. Carli is popular within the Baja community because it delivers.
But you don’t have to be a Baja enthusiast to benefit from a Carli. It’s also a great choice for the everyday street driver and provides a comfortable street driving experience.
The main principles of any suspension system are:
- Road Isolation
- Road Holding
Road Isolation is the vehicle’s ability to absorb road shock. Its goal is to allow the vehicle to run over rough roads without disturbing the body much.
Road Holding is the degree to which a car remains in contact with the road during various types of directional changes or while in a straight line.
Cornering is a vehicle’s ability to travel on a curved path. With a good suspension system, “roll over” (or rolling a vehicle) is minimized.
So you can see why choosing the right suspension system for your vehicle is so important. Your vehicle needs a good suspension system not only to give you a smoother ride, but also to give you a safer one.
