Shock Absorbers

Shock Absorbers

Shock absorbers dampen impulses that travel through your car's springs and suspension. Find a host of cheap replacement shock absorbers for every make and model at Car Parts 4 Less.

The primary job of your car's shock absorbers is to control the movement of springs and suspension. This dampens vibration and improves ride quality. Shock absorbers also help keep your tyres on the ground and this maintains your ability to steer, brake, or drive your car. Most shock absorbers work by converting kinetic energy into heat. They do this using spring-loaded check valves to pump oil through tiny orifices in the piston. Electromagnetic shocks store the kinetic energy for later use. There are many different types of shock absorber. As a result, you must make sure you buy the correct ones. For a list of suitable shock absorbers for your vehicle, simply type your vehicle's registration in the yellow number plate box.
