Nowadays, driving along paved, rocky, rough surfaced road is no longer a problem due to your car's suspension system. The suspension parts which have proved to be vital in many occasions are the springs and shocks. But what happens if one of those parts starts to go wrong? Eventually, you will start to suffer from the results of road irregularities. The pressure sustained by the wheels and the suspension will be uncontrolled. Ultimately, not only does the suspension will acquire damage, but the wheel assembly as well. You don't want to stop by the side of the road just because of a crappy suspension. That tells how much you important it is to install reliable Trailmaster shock absorber.
How does a shock absorber work? Basically, shocks or shock absorbers are dampening materials. They are used to dampen the movement of springs of the suspension as they react to the irregularities of road. As we all know, the constant bumping and humping of your vehicle causes the spring to move in an upward and downward movement continuously. This continuous movement could have caused the occupants of your vehicle to experience bouncy ride without the shocks. In other words, the shock absorber facilitates spring action through converting the kinetic energy produced by the suspension to thermal energy.
Theoretically, the shock absorber works like an oil pump. As the suspension compresses and decompresses due to vertical acceleration, the hydraulic fluid is forced to enter through the tiny holes from the piston, and thus the piston slows down to reduce the movement of the spring and the suspension.
