The function of shock absorbers

Shock absorbers are critical components of a vehicle’s suspension. They are designed to help control the impact and rebound movement of the vehicle’s springs and suspension. Along with smoothening out bumps and vibrations, the key role of the shock absorber is to ensure the vehicle’s tyres remain in contact with the ground at all times, ensuring the safest control and braking response from your car.

Shock absorbers are generally divided into cylinder shock absorber and strut.  They are similar in function, just different in design.

Shock absorbers are a consumable item, just like tyres, brake pads and engine oil.
