Your car's suspension arms, wishbone suspension arms, or track control arms are suspension parts. Hence they support chassis above the axles and the wheels. The front suspension arms are most important as they serve onto the steering axle, however the rear suspension arms should not be overlooked.
The car suspension arms are attached on one side to the chassis of the car by means of an axle. The other side consists of a ball joint connection which attaches the suspension arm to the wheel.
The suspension arms are there to guide the wheels and ensure the latter keep to the ground.If your suspension arms or the suspension arm bushes are worn, you will notice it becomes increasingly difficult to handle your car. In addition you will start hearing noise.
It is important to change the damaged parts as quickly as possible. Badly working suspension arms can lead to prematurely wearing your tyres, shock absorbers but also your brake discs and brake pads. In addition it can lead to a decreased adhesion. When you have a suspension arm problem, you will often have to replace the suspension arm bushes as well. As they are made of rubber, they become dry over time and crack.
