A shock absorber is a component of a car’s suspension system and is designed to reduce the jolts that cars experience when driving over bumps in the road. The majority of the shock the car experiences is handled by the suspensions springs, but it’s the shock absorber that actually keeps the body of the vehicle from bouncing up and down on the springs.
It’s crucial that every driver keep an eye on their struts and shock absorbers, and their state can lead to problems elsewhere. If the shock absorber has been worn down, then it is failing to maximise tyre contact with the road which in turn has a negative impact on the way the car handles and brakes. Aftermarket shock absorbers have been designed to improve on vehicle performance as well as offering a longer part life, and LK Performance offers a great range that will meet the various needs and requirements of different car makes and models.
