THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SHOCK ABSORBERS: 5 GOOD REASONS
Often neglected, they are among the most important elements in a car, because in addition to ensuring excellent road holding, they allow the driver to drive their car with the utmost comfort and safety while maintaining contact between the tires and the roadway.
1 - GREATER ROAD STABILITY
An efficient shock absorber is synonymous with safety, because if it is partially unloaded, it can lead to a temporary loss of contact between the wheel and the road surface while cornering, compromising control systems such as ABS and ESP.
2 - REDUCED STOPPING DISTANCE
Functioning shock absorbers contribute to a safe and effective braking while decreasing the stopping distance.
3 - HIT ABSORPTION CAPACITY
The ability of absorbing the rebound or recoil strokes caused by the road surface allows to limit damage to other car components such as tire wear and other steering and suspension parts and headlight misalignment.
4 - STEERING CONTROL
Vehicle stability and steering precision are ensured if the shock absorber keeps the damping force constant, thus reducing the loss of control and the sliding.
5 - DRIVING CONFORT
Good shock absorbers reduce car rolling, noise and vibration when in motion, thus providing an enjoyable, comfortable and dynamic driving.
