Role of a Car's Shock Absorbers- KYB

By | on Apr 27 ,2018 | 0 CommentSUSPENSION

A shock absorber is a mechanical or hydraulic device designed to absorb and depress shock impulses, doing this by converting the kinetic energy of the shock into another form of energy (typically heat) which is then disolved. Also, Shock absorbers reduce the effect of traveling over rough surfaces, leading to improved ride quality (comfort for the driver and passengers) and vehicle handling (vehicle’s response to the inputs of a driver).

While shock absorbers serve the purpose of limiting excessive suspension movement, their intended sole purpose is to depress spring oscillations(up and down movement). Shock absorbers use valving of oil and gasses to absorb excess energy from the springs.

There are many brands of shocks in the market, but for better vehicle performance, response and safety, you need a shock absorber that will give you the best handling, control, steer and acceleration. More so, a good shock absorber reduces the tyres up and down movement. Consequently, it keeps the car on the ground and gives the driver the ability to control the body movement of the car.

However a bad shock absorber gives the following: degrading performance of your vehicle, ride becomes harsh, stopping distance increases, tyres wear out more quickly and Loss of vehicle control.

Considerations for replacing Shocks:

For new ones, purchase only OEM brands or recognised aftermarket brands such as Bilstein, KYB, Monroe shock absorbers. For tokunbo shocks, observe if the shock absorbers automatically pushes out fast when pushed inside. Also ensure that the tokunbo shocks are the fairly used ones of the OEM brand. 

KYB Shocks are highly recommended for Japanese(Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Acura, Nissan, Infinity, Mitsubishi, Mazda), Korea(Kia, Hyundai) and Peugeot vehicles.
