Coil springs and leaf springs are designed to absorb up/down forces to keep tyres planted firmly on the road. Most modern cars have independent front/rear suspension. Dampeners, namely struts and shock absorbers, dissipate the energy absorbed by coil springs, so up/down motion is quickly reduced to zero. If the dampeners are in proper working order, the passengers should be unaffected by dips or bumps in the road. If the components are old or faulty, the vertical energy would cause your car to jump up off the road, then come crashing back down onto the road with even greater force, reducing tyre friction and control, making for a very uncomfortable and dangerous ride.

Some cars also have torsion bars (anti-sway or anti-roll bars) that span the car’s frame and help level out side-to-side motions while cornering. Torsion bars are an important feature of the suspension system, particularly on high-profile vehicles (such as 4WDs) that are considered top-heavy.

All suspension systems are different, but most include a chassis or frame, coil springs, leaf springs, dampeners including struts and shock absorbers, and anti-sway or torsion bars in various combinations.
