Shocks and Struts

A shock absorber is a mechanical device used on the vehicle to smooth and absorb bumps in the road. When a shock is compressed, oil is forced through the tiny orifices in the shock piston. This slows the movement of the shock absorber as it is compressed and as a result, slows the rate of the spring as well. Shocks should be replaced when they are worn as worn shocks will increase stopping distances, create excessive bounce, and create excessive roll and sway in the body.
There are many different constructions of of shock absorbers, but most shocks/struts have an oil filled chamber with a piston with small orifices. Struts and shocks are normally located at each wheel of the vehicle.

The front suspension system is comprised mainly of a spring, a shock or strut, control arms, control arm bushings, a wheel bearing, and ball joints.

The suspension connects the frame to the wheels of the vehicle. It also contributes to the handling of the vehicle and the comfort of the passengers. The springs and struts/shocks absorb bumps in the road. Control arms, control arm bushings and ball joints allow the wheel to move up and down. The wheel bearing, hub and knuckle assembly connect the wheel to the control arm.
When a shock absorber is compressed, oil is forced through small holes in the shock absorber valves. Most shock absorbers have multiple valve stages designed to control different driving situations.A shock absorber is a mechanical dampening device used on a vehicle to control the amount of movement in the suspension and to ensure that the tires remain in contact with the road.
