The McPherson strut combines a shock absorber and a spring in a single unit, by means of which each wheel is attached to the car body. The function and operation of shock absorbers are widely misunderstood. VEHICLE SUSPENSION The most common from strut in an automobile is the McPherson strut combines a shock absorber and a spring in a single unit, by mean of which each wheel is attached to the car body. The function and operation of shock absorber are widely misunderstood. Here we present the bare fact on shocks and your many options in shock absorbers. The first lesson to be learnt about shocks absorbers is that their name is deceiving , for shock absorbers do not absorb shocks -or at least that is no their primary role. Shock absorbers are devices that resist movement of the car”s spring and also reduce body roll and also reduces (un - even) tyre and other suspension parts SHOCKS IN ACTION : When a tyre hits a bump in the road surface, the wheel and suspension moves upwards causing the spring to compress. The spring absorb the energy of the impact and then release this energy by expanding. This movement of the suspension is necessary to allow to pass over the bump without causing the body of the car to rise the same distance. However, further expansion and compression of the spring after the impact is unwanted and this is what a shock absorber is designed to prevent. Shock absorbers, like springs, are generally mounted between the axle and the car body. When a spring expands and compresses, the shock resist this movement by controlling the flow of oil inside the shocks through a number of control valve. in a vehicle, shocks absorbers reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride in quality and increase in comfort . While shock absorber serve the purpose of limiting excessive suspension movement ( tyre wear and road holding their intended sole purpose is to dampen spring oscillations, Shock absorbers use valving of oil and gases to absorb excess energy from the springs.
