Where can I get dependable suspension work done on my car?

If you’ve been shopping around for a new vehicle, or even studying your car, you may have noticed what’s called a “sport-tuned suspension.” Many vehicles are offered with standard or available sport-tuned suspension, including some Volkswagen models. Getting dependable suspension work done to your car is easy when you choose Pfaff Tuning. Our technicians can upgrade and tune your suspension to your specific driving style!

What is a car’s suspension?

First, it’s important to understand what a normal suspension is and does. The term “suspension” can be used to refer to all sorts of components, including the tires, springs and shocks. In addition to helping separate you and your vehicle from the road pavement while traveling at high speeds, the suspension helps make your driving experience a smooth one. After all, hitting bumps or potholes at highway speeds can’t be comfortable, and we have the suspension to thank for not knowing exactly how that feels.

What is a sport-tuned suspension?

So, then, what is a sport-tuned suspension and how does it compare to a regular suspension? A sport-tuned suspension will be firmer, and though it certainly won’t make for a painful or uncomfortable drive, it isn’t designed to absorb everything that a normal suspension does. In fact, it’s designed to help drivers “feel” the road a little bit better. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Less body roll.
  • Better road feel.
  • Better handling around corners.
  • Typically lower than a normal suspension.
  • More appealing for drivers taking their vehicle to the track.

What about lowered suspension?

There are pros and cons to lowered suspension systems. Some drivers change their suspension systems so that the vehicle sits lower to the ground. Any kind of aftermarket suspension system or alteration has its own specific effects on a vehicle. Lowered suspension can have the following advantages:

  • Better aerodynamics
  • Improved traction and handling
  • Reduced rollover risk
  • Greater comfort
