Question Suspension Maint:: How to keep things running smooth?

Is there anything that the weekend warrior can do to keep the suspension running smooth (without waiting for catastrophic failure or rebuilds)? I am a just curous if there is anything common sense or basic that I can do to keep everything in good working order.

Thanks

Best advice I can offer is to rotate tires often ( I do mine at 5k) and balance at the same time. Will keep things feeling new for quite a long time............

I guess I should have specified in regards to struts and springs.

Thanks for the advice though (as I do use that already )

I don't think there's any real maintenance you can do for your struts and springs... they're pretty well self-sufficient, at least until they die

You can hose them off when you wash your car just to get all the crud off of them. Aside from that, not much you can do except maybe try to avoid those potholes.
