What are Shock Absorbers?
Shock Absorbers are suspensions that absorb the impact of the vehicles movement. By reducing the effect of traveling on rugged terrain, you will get an improved ride quality, better wheel control and comfort. Shock absorbers will also keep the quality of your ride when driving on smoother terrain, such as a highway.
While Shock Absorbers do help in limiting too much suspension movement, their main function is to dampen spring oscillations. To absorb energy from the springs, the shocks use valving of oil and gases. Please note, spring rates are chosen from manufacturer based on the weight of the vehicle.
Shock absorbers are perfect for that off-roading enthusiast who also wants a smoother on-road ride.
