Hit A Huge "DIP" In The Road Today...

I was going approx. 60 mph.

The road suddenly "Dipped" and when I came out of it I felt as though my cars wheels had left the ground for a second before "recovering".

Could this have done any suspension damage ?

You are probably ok. To ease your mind, the dealer can check that out for free.

You are probably fine ... Damage would have made itself apparent almost immediately.

did you hear anything scratch/scrape?

If not Im pretty sure you are fine... if so, Id want to at least look for scratches under the car that could lead to rusting of parts.

This type of thing is also why it is good to get an alignment when new tires are purchased, at least.
