Your vehicle’s suspension is the system of parts that connects the frame to the wheels, thus isolating it from the road, allowing for relative motion. In addition to supporting the full weight of your vehicle, suspension systems affect stance, ride height, handling, and ride quality.

In vehicles with a factory coilover suspension, part of this system is a steel coil spring that goes over the shock or strut.

Brake calipers are a vital part of your brake system. The brake caliper is what brings the disc brake pad into contact against your brake rotor and generates the stopping power of the vehicle.   Seized calipers or seized sliding parts of the brake caliper will cause many problems including brake drag, brake overheat and hot spots on brake rotors, cracks in brake rotors and very commonly rotor ribbing or rotor galling which shows up as record style grooves or ribs on the rotor in a general pattern.
