Your car may have upto 50 different sensors!....sometimes even more!!!! below is a list of the most common sensors found in most cars, just click on the sensor name to find out more about it.


In automotive usage, the term "suspension" refers to all of the parts that connect the vehicle to the road. Every car, truck, and utility vehicle has a suspension that is designed to do three things:

  • Support the vehicle

  • Absorb bumps and other shocks

  • Allow the vehicle to turn in response to steering input from the driver

Modern suspensions are composed of hundreds of different parts, and vehicles vary tremendously in their suspension designs, but every suspension is composed of certain major subsystems, some of which are more prone to failure than others.

The main components are:

  • Top Mounts

  • Coil Springs

  • Wishbone

  • Anti roll bar link arm/Drop Link

  • Bushes

  • Track rod end

  • Inner tie rod

  • Steering Rack

  • Bearings
