NECCESSITY OF ORIGINAL VEHICLES DAMPER : SHOCKS

1. What is a shock?

The shock is essentially what keeps the spring in check. Think about it: you go over a huge bump, the front springs compress to the max, and BOING! The entire front end of your car bounces skyward, taking the tires with it. Except that’s not what happens, right? Well, not as long as your shocks are in working order. See, the purpose of the shocks is to dampen the oscillation of the springs. That’s why you’ll hear mechanics use "shock" and "damper" interchangeably. Functional shocks keep those springs in check, letting you enjoy the impact-absorbing properties of the springs without any undue bouncing after the fact.
