A shock absorber is a main suspension component of your vehicle. It is a device used for controlling and reducing the effect of bumps in the road. It controls the up-and-down motion of the car wheels. It is referred to as dampers since it provides resistance to suspension movements. It controls the movement of a vehicle's suspension springs making sure that the tires keep contact with the road surface. It keeps the vehicle's body from bouncing down the road on its springs. Each shock absorber contains a piston that slides through a cylinder.
The piston is designed so hydraulic fluid on either side of the piston head provides resistance against which the up-and-down motion of the wheels must work. The shock pushes it down into the reservoir, compressing the fluid. If you suspect any problems with your shock absorber set, you need to immediately find a replacement.
