Fender Benders and Hidden Damage
I-CAR Gold Certified Technicians
When a vehicle is involved in an accident, the forces of impact travel in all directions and reverberate across the frame of a vehicle. What’s at the bottom of the vehicle? The frame and suspension. These unseen gems of a vehicle are hidden from plain sight but may take the impact during a fender bender or collision.

Manufacturers design automobiles to distribute forces away from the driver and passengers during a collision. The energy is dispersed away from the cabin and expelled in multiple directions. Vehicles are designed to be totaled to save lives. When a vehicle collides with an object, the suspension is inline with impact forces. The wheels, shocks, struts, and springs are the main components of a suspension and may suffer unseen damages.
After a collision, the vehicle may appear normal. It’s when the driver pulls away and notices the vehicle rides rough, bounces, or dips to one side. If the vehicle dips to one side, a shock or strut may be damaged. Struts are manufactured into the vehicle and shocks are separate components. If a strut is damaged in a collision, hidden dangers may be lurking underneath.
