Your car's suspension system creates balance between the friction from the tires and the road surface. When your suspension is working properly, your car will ride smooth with better handling. If every road ever built were perfectly flat, there would be no need for a suspension system. Unfortunately, there are no perfectly flat roads in the real world.

The suspension system controls what are known as vehicle dynamics. Some of the principles of vehicle dynamics include road isolation, road holding and cornering. Road isolation is your car's ability to absorb shock. Road holding is how well a car grips the surface of the road. Cornering is how well your car can handle curved roads. In a nutshell, your car's suspension system controls how well your car rides and how well it drives.
