What Role Shocks Play

WHAT ARE SHOCKS AND STRUTS?

SHOCKS AND STRUTS HELP KEEP YOUR VEHICLE’S TIRES IN CONTACT WITH THE ROAD

  • Shocks and struts not only improve ride comfort but are necessary for safe handling.
  • Shocks and struts maintain vertical loads placed upon the tires. This helps ensure consistent, firm tire-to-road contact.
  • By providing resistance to vehicle bounce, roll and sway - as well as brake dive and acceleration squat - shocks and struts help to maintain a balanced ride.

  • Reduce vehicle bounce, roll and sway - plus brake dive and acceleration squat
  • Help to maintain consistent handling and braking
  • Help maintain wheel alignment
  • Help to reduce the potential of premature wear on tires and other suspension components
